Isaac Shove established the insurance agency in 1859. Mr. Shove operated the agency until his death when the agency was sold to George Parker Sr. in 1910. The Parker family operated the firm for more than 70 years before it was purchased by William J. “Bill” Hunt, current co-owner and president, and two former employees. Later, David Francis, co-owner and vice president, bought out the ex-employees and now works with Bill to carry on the tradition of offering exceptional service and affordable insurance policies
