One of Murphy NC’s most historic and recognizable landmarks is under construction! Not only is it getting an interior remodel, it’s getting a whole new wing added!
The new Cherokee County Court House is being designed and expanded to fit the large majority of county operations. It will help consolidate the many offices that are scattered all over town. Offices that directly affect real estate, such as the tax office, mapping department, and register of deeds, will all be located in the new building.
Personally, I’m excited the Cherokee County Commissioners chose the route of updating the existing court house! Many of the other counties in Western North Carolina have opted to build a brand new courthouse rather than update the existing. In many cases, the county really didn’t have a choice because of building or space constraints. However, since the old jail was demolished, Cherokee County had the space to expand the existing building. This helps keep the rich history of Cherokee County and its many court houses alive. After all, it’s one of the very few marble court houses in America! And since it is made of marble quarried here in our area, it makes it that much more special. It’s truly an impressive building!
I’m looking forward to having it completed and when you are driving through downtown Murphy, be sure to check out there progress as you drive by!
