Walker’s Chapel Cemetery, Townsend

This is only a partial listing of this cemetery and is by no means complete. If you would like to submit names, photos or additional information on anyone interred in this cemetery please feel free to click on the email link at the bottom of this page to contact me.

Walker’s Chapel Cemetery is located on the former site of Walker’s Chapel Church. It is on Old Tuckaleechee Pike almost at the end of the Melrose Bridge. The cemetery is on a hillside and is completely overtaken by trees, brush and undergrowth. If you didn’t already know where the cemetery was, you wouldn’t be able to find it just by driving by. I don’t know who owns the property now, but it is posted with “No Trespassing” signs. This is not a complete recording but it was all my husband and I could get considering the conditions.
