The Verne Hart Insurance agency was established in 1956 by Verne Hart. Mr. Hart came to Marion as a representative of the AETNA Insurance Company. He purchased the existing Lawson Insurance Agency and retitled it Farm & City. In 1970, a sister corporation, Verne Hart Bonding was developed to specialize in financial responsibility and surety bonds.
Through the years of diligent sales and agency acquisitions, the company has enjoyed considerable growth. The 11 insurance companies represented range in size from small regional companies to large international companies. Today's agency has 7 employees, all of which are licensed insurance agents. The Agency specializes in all lines of property and casualty insurance.
