Fort Butler Memorial Park in Murphy NC

Fort Butler Memorial Park in Murphy NCLocated 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.
