Garden gate and door at the Columbarium


Surrounded by the majesty of the lake and the mountains, the Lake Junaluska Columbarium and Garden of Memory are sacred spaces for those wanting to make Lake Junaluska a final resting place for themselves or loved ones.

The time following the death of a loved one can be demanding, especially when having to make funeral arrangements. Planning in advance can ease the burden on those left behind.

The Columbarium is located in the Room of Memory connected to Memorial Chapel, expanding the Chapel’s purpose to a fuller extent. A Garden of Memory (sometimes known as a scatter garden) lies adjacent to the Room of Memory as a place to inter ashes in the earth.

We pray that both spaces will serve as a comforting location for friends and family to gather in remembrance long into the future. Download Columbarium Policies & Procedures (PDF).
