Once Cherry and Spring Street, later Cherry and Church, is rich in Nashville history. Near here, April 2, 1781, Charlotte Reeves Robertson, wife of Colonel James Robertson, turned the pioneers' dogs loose on raiding Indians during the "Battle of the Bluff" and saved Fort Nashborough. In 1930, the Noel Hotel, one of the South's finest, was formally opened. The Hamilton Bank , upon acquiring the property in 1972, elected to restore the Noel building in celebration of this, our American Bicentennial, thereby saving a landmark for future generations.
