It’s official! The approximately 110 million dollar project known as Harrahs Cherokee Valley River Casino and Hotel officially opened its doors for business today right here in Murphy NC. The attendance was so great it literally caused a several mile long traffic jam on the the eastbound 74! It’s an exciting business that has brought some great job opportunities to the area. As you can see from the pictures, there were a lot of people there checking it out.
It’s been over a year ago since the Cherokee representatives met with local Realtors in the area, and its amazing to see such an ambitious construction project come to fruition. It’s another thing to add to the To Do List in Murphy NC. As we understand, there are more phases in the long range plan that will bring ever more entertainment, food, and more right here to Murphy. If you’re a casino goer, enjoy! 😀
