On October 6th the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians held a groundbreaking ceremony for the new Harrah’s Cherokee Valley River Casino & Hotel.

Besides the 60,000 sq ft gaming facility there will also be a 300 room hotel with full service and dining options. The project is expected to take 2 years to complete and is expected to create 600 jobs during construction and 900 jobs after completion.

Murphy NC is just minutes from trout streams, hiking trails, kayaking or white water rafting through the Nantahala Gorge and Ocoee. You can browse in one of many antique and craft shops or just enjoy the sunset on your own deck in peaceful solitude.

Only 2 hours from Atlanta, Chattanooga, Knoxville and Asheville, Murphy, NC feels like it’s from a different time and place. A time when life moved at a slower pace and people savored the simple pleasures. You CAN have it all!!!!!

    What can you tell us about the casino? When is the expected date that it will be up and running? All we see is sometime in the fall of 2015. We don’t live far from Murphy N. C. and we go to Cherokee a lot. We are looking forward to coming to the River Casino when it is open. Thank you for any up dates.
