Cherokee County NC Information

Located in the southwestern corner of North Carolina in the Blue Ridge chain of the Great Smoky Mountains, Cherokee County was formed in 1839 from Macon County. It is in the western section of the State and is bounded by the states of Georgia and Tennessee and the North Carolina Counties: Graham, Swain, Macon and Clay. The courts were ordered to be held at one of the houses at Fort Butler until a courthouse could be erected. Fort Butler was in the town of Murphy. Murphy is the county seat. The county encompasses an area of about 455 square miles. It is about 32 miles from east to west and about 20 miles from north to south. There are two towns which embody the spirit and charm of small town America. They are Murphy, the county seat, and Andrews. There are also many small communities with colourful and unique names. At the time of the 2000 census, the population of the county was 24,298, with Murphy having 1,568 and Andrews having 1602. However, the area is growing rapidly.

The county contains 300,100 acres, with 92,363 acres of United States Forest Service Land, 8,700 acres of lakes, and 6,000 acres of Indian land, with the remaining area being farmlands. The county is surrounded by the Nantahala National Forest. The highest elevation in the county is about 5,100 feet, on the corner where Cherokee and Clay counties meet at Fires Creek. The lowest elevation is about 1,200 feet, where Apalachia Lake crosses into Tennessee.

The many lakes and breathtaking mountain views create many scenic backdrops. There are hiking trails, fishing streams, and camping areas, where the air is crisp and clean. There are nearby white water adventures, golfing, boating, horseback riding and many other activities available in the area. Cherokee County has theatres, craft shows, antique shops, festivals and fairs. The crime rate is low and one can find serenity in this beautiful mountain area.

Cherokee County NC Towns and Communities

MURPHY
Murphy, the county seat, has the distinction of being known as both the first and last town in North Carolina, depending on which way you're going, of course. Murphy combines a rich, interesting past with a strong promising future.

Murphy began as an Indian trading post called Huntersville, then Huntington, and finally was named after Archibald D. Murphey, who was a state senator and an advocate of education in Western North Carolina.

ANDREWS
Andrews and its surrounding valley is ringed to the north and east by the Snowbird Mountains. The town of Andrews offers a quiet reminder of days when this area of North Carolina was part of the rugged mountain terrain, when roads were only horse trails, and when everyone looked out for his neighbor. Things haven't changed all that much. Horses still abound in the area and friendliness, neighborliness, and a sense of security still prevail.

The history of Andrews is closely related to the building of the Richmond and Danville Railroad, which was complete in Andrews in the spring of 1890. Andrews was named in honor of the railroad's second vice president, Colonel A. B. Andrews.

BRASSTOWN AND OTHER COMMUNITIES
Cherokee County has several unique communities sprinkled throughout its mountains and valleys. One of the most well-known is the craft community of Brasstown. Topton, the gateway to the Nantahala Gorge offers many recreational facilities. The Peachtree community is home to Murphy Medical Center, Tri-County Community College and several of the county's industries. It is one of the fastest growing areas in the county. Other communities include Hiwassee Dam, which boasts its own high school, Marble, Ranger, Martin's Creek, Bellview, Hanging Dog and Culberson.
