Finding affordable, reliable insurance can often be a taxing process.

But thanks to four generations of the Henderson family and the men and women of Rhoe B. Henderson Insurance Agency, the process is not only made simpler, but reassuring.

Late last year, the independently-owned and locally-operated insurance agency, located at 552 W. Third St. in Jamestown, marked its 90th anniversary of matching clients with quality and affordable policies.

Unlike other agencies that may be tied to a single insurance carrier, Rhoe B. Henderson Insurance Agency works with several top insurance companies and finds the one that will make the biggest difference in terms of price, service and value.

Rhoe Henderson, owner, said he feels proud the agency has been able to serve the community for 90 years, crediting his staff’s integrity and the trust they’ve earned in the community for agency’s longevity.

It’s also “incredible,” he added, that four generations of his family have entered the business.

“My grandfather and father were in the business before me, and now my son has come into the business as well,” Henderson said. “My grandfather used to go out to house to house, sit down with people in their kitchen, while my grandmother sat out in the car and knitted … that’s just the way he grew the business.”

Henderson, who’s been with the agency since 1969, said he observed early on the enjoyment his family experienced working and helping people in the community.

Indeed, he said, the agency’s “local” credentials are important.

“We have people from the community who work in the agency and volunteer in the community,” he said. “I think what also sets us apart is everybody in our agency is a licensed agent, they’re all dedicated to the business and continue to take courses so they can provide the best possible advice for our prospects and our clients.”

Henderson said he’s grateful for the support the agency has received since its inception in 1926.

“We want to thank the community for all their support over the years and we look forward to continuing to serve them for many more years.”
