You’ve been to Murphys before. And you’re aware this is an unrivaled and incomparable historic Gold Country town nestled in the Sierra Foothills a mere 2.5-hour drive from San Francisco or San Jose and 1.5 hours from Sacramento. Just a year ago, Murphys was deemed one of the “8 California Small Towns to Visit Right Now,” by the San Francisco Chronicle. But you’ve known this for years whether you visit once a year or more often. 

We know you may not be ready to visit Murphys during this global crisis pandemic. And we understand. Certainly, Murphys misses you as much as you miss us. Like most of our nation, this small town, its businesses, and its institutions are suffering extremely challenging times. Operating budgets for your favorite Murphys organizations have been severely impacted. These organizations operate and maintain things like Murphys Community Park, Murphys Old Timer’s Museum, and Feeney Park, as well as caring for the majestic trees lining the very beating heart of our town, Main Street, Murphys. These are just a few of the things that require our attention on a weekly basis. While you might not be able to visit us right now, there is a way that you can help. 

Join “Inside Murphys”. For an annual donation of $25 or more, you can become a Murphys Insider and be a part of helping these organizations continue to do all of the things that they do to keep Murphys your favorite destination in the Western Sierra Foothills. You will receive monthly emails on how your membership is helping The Queen of the Sierras keep everything fresh and ready for your return, whenever that might be. In addition, we will keep you apprised of additional benefits and offerings that will be made available to you as a Murphys Insider.

Thanks for your time. We look forward to seeing you back here just as soon as you are comfortable.

DONATE TO A LOCAL ORGANIZATION IN NEED:

As you might imagine, all of our Murphys organizations are struggling to pay the bills and continue providing services during the pandemic.  We all rely on events and activities to raise funds each year and all of those events and activities are currently on hold.  If you are fortunate enough to be able to contribute an additional donation, it would be much appreciated.  All of the following organizations are non-profits and any donation is tax-deductible to the extent of your individual situation.

Make a one-time donation of any amount to the Murphys Business Association to be used where the need is greatest.  We are currently raising money to maintain, replace, and protect the Main Street trees.
