Thinking of moving to Murphy? Maybe your retiring or looking for a vacation home and you don’t know who makes up our community.
Murphy is a small town with a rich history. Find a local born and raised in the area and they will tell you stories of how it used to be and it really hasn’t changed a lot, when compared to other towns. Yet, progress has afforded some good changes without sacrificing the small town feel.
Murphy’s population is slowly shifting to becoming a retirement/vacation community. Most of the newer communities are filled with southerners trying to escape the heat and traffic from areas south of Murphy. Many are the typical half-backs. Born up north, moved to the south and are now settling somewhere in between.
Finding neighbors from your hometown is quite common. Sit in one of the local restaurants and you will run into someone from your hometown.
Whether or not you agreed with the building of the casino, it has contributed to the community. You will run into casino workers in town. If they were not from Murphy, they have become locals, just like the rest of us who moved here.
Most of the local economy is made up of small businesses. Retail stores, restaurants, auto repair and of course realtors. Get out and meet them. It will help you make up your mind that Murphy is a nice place to live.
