This Cemetery, although located just over the line in Jackson County, has many Haywood County natives buried here. Burial is now strictly limited to members of the Church and those born and raised in Balsam Township (which does not include those who have moved into and back out of the community). To reach the Cemetery, travel west on US 19A & 23 toward Sylva. After you pass the Blue Ridge Parkway overpass and before reaching the Jackson County line (this line has been moved) remain in the left lane after passing through Balsam Gap and make a left turn at the sign directing you to Balsam Township. Turn left onto Candlestick Lane, turn next right onto Cabin Flats Road, turn next right onto Heavenly Lane (paved road immediately before railroad tracks). This takes you to a brick Church (Balsam Baptist Church). Continue to the right through church parking lot that ends at Cemetery gates. This is a well maintained Cemetery with all but five graves unmarked.
