Always thinking ahead is the motto of The Hartford and they have embodied that motto since their inception in 1810.

In 1870 The Hartford expanded west to San Francisco, CA and now offers insurance from coast-to-coast. In 1913 the company expanded again to include accident, automobile liability, personal damage, business interruption and many more products. The Hartford is not only committed to its customers, but their whole families. In 1947, the company created the Junior Fire Marshals program to educate children about fire safety. The Junior Fire Marshals program is still in operation today.

In 1984, the company was awarded a contract to cover AARP member’s home and auto insurance. Currently AARP boasts over 37 million members.
