Murphy and Andrews

Connected by the Valley River, these two towns sit in the Southwest corner of North Carolina and offer outdoor adventures, wineries and charming mountain culture.  Located at the confluence of the Hiawassee and Valley rivers, Murphy features plenty of water sports, fishing and boating activities and annual festivals.  Up the road is Andrews, a rising small town and home to Hawkesdene; a luxury estate for weddings, reunions and retreats.  Stop in the newly opened brewery, Hoppy Trout, for a delicious house-brewed beer and some brick-oven pizza.

The museum is housed in a historic Carnegie Library building in downtown Murphy.The Museum's exhibits include: over 2,000 Cherokee artifacts, 40 exhibit panels with drawings and photographs that interpret local Cherokee history and culture, antique farm implements and vintage household items (many hand-made) used by early pioneer settlers, over 700 collectible dolls.

Murphy was once the site of Fort Butler, one of the main holding areas for Cherokees who were being removed from North Carolina in the 1830's. Other sites in and around Murphy play a prominent role in Cherokee history, mythology, and culture. The museum houses a replica of the log cabin dwellings used by the Cherokee residents of the area at the time of their removal. This type of dwelling was also typical of that used by pioneer settlers, many of whom moved into the vacated Cherokee cabins. In front of the building rests an ancient stone turtle carved from soapstone that is associated with a Cherokee creation legend. Hours of Operation Monday - Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. Elevator accessible. Tours are offered to school children, elderhostels, seniors and other groups by appointment. Admission Fees Admission is $3.00 for adults and $1.00 for children.
