Memorial Garden

The NCVAN Crime Victims' Memorial Garden is a special place where loved ones of homicide victims can remember the lives taken by violence.

Visit the garden all year round

The names of those taken by violent crime are inscribed on the bricks that line the walkway of the garden, reflecting the memories of those who are forever etched on our hearts. The garden provides the opportunity to reflect on the special memories and years spent with loved ones, and its tranquility gives the sense of a hopeful future.
