History and Archives

            More than 100 years ago, a small dedicated group of Methodists traveled far and wide seeking the ideal location for a new assembly space.  Outside of Asheville, N.C., that place was found.  Lake Junaluska was founded in 1913 to provide space for fellowship, worship, and recreation along the shores of a tranquil mountain lake.

The unique name comes from Junaluska Mountain, which was named after a Cherokee Indian Chief who saved Andrew Jackson’s life during a battle.

In its first year, Lake Junaluska had only land, a lake, 13 homes and a single auditorium.  Since then the conference and retreat center has grown exponentially to include hotels, lodges, apartments, a campground, a golf course and meeting spaces.

You can explore Lake Junaluska’s history by visiting its museums (the Southeastern Jurisdiction Heritage Center and Museum; the World Methodist Museum) or taking a historic boat or trolley tour.
