Cherokee Casino coming to Murphy NC in 2014
Cherokee Casino coming to Murphy NC in 2014! Just outside of Murphy and close to the Wal-Mart is the proposed site where the Casino will be built. The Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians Tribal Council tabled a resolution Feb 28, 2013 to authorize construction of a casino and hotel on trust land in Cherokee County.
The property known as the Palmer land is approximately 85 acres. Plans right now are that after all environmental and other inspections are completed and they break ground, a temporary casino will be built on site within six months, which would operate until a permanent facility was completed. Right now they believe that Murphy NC Casino site could be up in running by the first quarter of 2014. The permanent facility would be complete in about 18 to 24 months from start to finish.
The 50,000 sq. ft. Cherokee Murphy NC Casino will have 1,000 slot machines and 40 - 50 gaming tables. Also planned is a 300 room hotel tower and restaurants. Best of all it will bring 800 new jobs to Cherokee County NC. You can count on us keeping you updated with all the progress of the Casino and Things To Do in Murphy NC.
