No one was injured when a fire broke out at the historic Hancock House in Gallatin last week, according to officials with the Gallatin Fire Department.
Fire crews were called to the inn and event space, located at 2144 Nashville Pike, shortly after 2:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 11,, Gallatin Fire Chief Jeff Beaman told the Gallatin News.
It took crews about an hour and a half to bring the fire under control, officials added.
According to its website, the Hancock House was a pre-1851 stagecoach stop and toll gate house that was known as Avondale Station. The property was later turned into a bed and breakfast that was also able to host large gatherings like weddings and other private events for up to 200 guests.
In all, five engines and about 40 firefighters responded to the blaze, Beaman added. The Hendersonville Fire Department also sent a crew to cover other parts of Gallatin while crews battled the fire.
A portion of Nashville Pike between Cages Bend Road and Hunt Club Boulevard was shut down for several hours.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
