Murphy Veterans Tribute Update
The Murphy Veterans Tribute has taken some big steps since the beginning of 2018. Murphy Historical Society leaders of this committee started out one year ago discussing the wish to have a tribute to veterans in the City of Murphy. Through much research on sites across the nation, in cities that had a tribute/memorial to veterans, the committee formulated a vision.
The City of Murphy then donated a plot of land 100' x 100' in Central Park. Since that time in August when the land was donated, steps have been taken to move forward on plans for breaking ground. Halff and Associates, Landscape and Design Engineers, have been commissioned to develop a plan for the site. This plan should be finalized in approximately two months so we can begin our fundraising campaign.
People are excited about the project, many asking about our "concept plan" and what it will look like. After we get this plan finalized and have an idea of the cost of this community project, we will know what our fundraising numbers need to look like. We will then start our major fundraising campaign. We look forward to developing an amazing tribute to our military personnel.
