History of Agency
The Taylor-Palmer Agency traces it's lineage from Col. John C. Stearns who initiated an agency of general insurance in Bradford, Vermont with Charles Jones in 1869.
Col. Stearns had a series of partners over the years, ending in 1905 with Frank L. Brigham when the firm went by the name Stearns & Brigham. In 1938 Charles G. Taylor bought the agency and expanded. After Mr. Taylor suffered a heart attack in January, 1948, he asked his son-in-law, Horace A. Palmer, to help him run the agency. In 1973 Mr. Palmer was joined in the business by his son, Horace (Hod) A. Palmer, III, who quickly learned the business.
In 2004, Taylor-Palmer was acquired by Paige & Campbell, Inc. of Barre, strengthening the agency's place in the marketplace and securing additional markets for the benefit of the agency's policyholders.
Today, Paige & Campbell, Inc. has offices in Barre, Bristol and Waitsfield and continues to operate as the Taylor-Palmer Agency in Bradford.
