Hanging on the wall in our office is an insurance policy written by Hugh Bertram. The policy was written in 1897. It insured a farmhouse, contents, 2 barns, a stable, shed and related contents. The annual premium on the policy was $103.00.
Hugh’s son Ron took over the insurance business after his father passed away in 1941. Ron developed the brokerage through hard work, attention to details, and most of all, outstanding service to his customers. Ron Bertram retired in 1977 and sold the business to his son-in-law John Barry.
Today, 4 generations later, the business remains an independent, family owned and operated insurance brokerage.
