Alcohol Finally Passes for Cherokee County! Murphy North Carolina is the new up and coming area for investors
The votes are in! Cherrokee County North Carolina days of being a dry County are over. For the small town of Murphy NC, this couldn't have come at a better time. Murphy's new Harrah's Cherokee Valley River Casino & Hotel opened their doors October 2015 and are expected to bring in an estimated 500,000 + tourist to the area this summer. Investors were waiting in the wings to see if the 2016 ballot to allow alchohol sales outside of city limits, was going to pass. Well, it did, and now investors are making their moves.
Business investors are not the only ones cashing in on the great opportunity to own a piece of Murphy NC. First time home buyers, flippers, and rental property investors are also scooping up available homes to earn an income from the estimated rise in equity. "It's a un-tapped goldmine of opportunity here in Murphy", said one local man.
As a Realtor/Broker in Murphy, NC Big Frank Schuler was interviewed by the Cherokee Scout and commented that "We are a tourist community now" said Big Frank Nov 2, 2016.
Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians Breaks Ground on New Casino
Ceremonial Kick-Off Marks Beginning of $110 million project in Cherokee County, NC
MURPHY, N.C., Oct. 15, 2013
MURPHY, N.C., Oct. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A $110 million project to build a new casino in Cherokee County, NC is officially underway. A groundbreaking ceremony for the new Harrah's Casino was held today at the future site of the facility just outside the town of Murphy. The casino will be owned by the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians (EBCI) and will be managed by Caesars Entertainment Corporation.
The EBCI already owns Harrah's Cherokee Casino Resort, which is located in the town of Cherokee, about an hour away from the new casino site. The Cherokee County facility will feature 60,000 square feet of gaming space with slots and traditional table games; a 300-room full service hotel; and a variety of dining options.
The casino will be located approximately two hours away from Knoxville, Chattanooga and downtown Atlanta and will serve the large and growing adult population living within that radius. In 2011, 7.4 million people age 21 or older lived within 2.5 hours of the casino site. Now, more than 7.6 million people adults live in that same area.
"Our winning partnership with Caesars Entertainment gives us a proven track record in the gaming industry," said Principal Chief Michell Hicks. "This is an ambitious project, but we are confident that it will be a success – for our customers, our tribe and for the surrounding community."
The games featured will include traditional favorites as well as the most popular slot products available on the market when the casino opens.
"The Cherokee County casino will certainly bear the high standards of the Caesar's name and brand," said Gary Loveman, chairman, chief executive officer and president of Caesars Entertainment Corporation. "We are an industry leader, and we implement the full expectations of that status into every facility we manage. Hopefully, that will translate into continued success for the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians and the residents and other businesses of Cherokee County."
The casino will create an estimated 900 jobs on-site and inject up to $39 million in wages into the surrounding area.

Free fishing set on July 4
The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission invites anglers and would-be anglers of all ages to go fishing - for free.
From 12:01 a.m. until 11:59 p.m. Thursday, July 4, everyone in North Carolina - resident and non-residents, can fish in any public body of water, including coastal waters, without purchasing a fishing license or additional trout fishing privilege.
Although no fishing license is required all other fishing regulations, including size and creel limits and lure restrictions, still apply.
To give anglers a better chance of catching fish, the commission stocks a variety of fish in waters across the state, including trout and channel catfish.
The agency also provides access to fishing sites across the state, including public fishing areas and boating access areas.
The interactive fishing and boating maps on the commission's Web site list more than 500 fishing and boating areas, many of which are free and open to the public.
Authorized by the N.C. General Assembly in 1994, North Carolina's annual free fishing day always falls on the Fourth of July.
