Located in downtown Murphy NC on an aptly named Fort Butler Street, the site of Fort Butler can be found as a memorial to the location that spearheaded the removal of the Cherokee Indians to Oklahoma in 1837 on the Trail of Tears. Today, all that remains is a small memorial park you can easily find on Fort Butler Street. It’s probably only a 1/2 mile on the right. You’ll see the memorial stone right off the side of the road.
