Welcome to Horne Insurance! We are a 3rd generation insurance agency that will put our combination of 70 years of experience within the insurance business to work for you. It all started back in the 1950s when granddad, Dennis Horne, launched his career with a company by the name of Farm Bureau Mutual. Dennis opened an in-home office in St. Augustine, PA, alongside their country store, and was able to service people from the surrounding areas. In 1955, Farm Bureau Mutual made a decision to change its name to what is now known as Nationwide Insurance. Nationwide Insurance aspired to sell insurance from the east coast to the west coast and by 1969 launched the jingle, “Nationwide is on your side,” as a national marketing campaign. Dennis’s two sons, Joseph and Francis Horne, followed in their father’s footsteps and decided to continue what soon became the family business. Joseph Horne opened a Nationwide Insurance office in Northern Cambria, PA and Francis Horne opened a Nationwide Insurance office in Cresson, PA along with in home offices in Patton, PA. Both brothers had over 35 years of individual service to Nationwide Insurance. Following in his father’s footsteps, Joseph’s son, Patrick Horne, took the reign to the Northern Cambria office in 1979 expanding the Nationwide Insurance business to not only include insurance, but also include a full tag notary business. Francis’s son, Dennis Horne, worked alongside his father for two years and decided that insurance was in his blood. Dennis became a Nationwide agent in 1989 and has been servicing Cresson, Pennsylvania and surrounding area ever since, even expanding his clientele in the 90s by licensing in the state of Maryland. In 2018, Patrick with over 39 years of dedication, decided that it was time to retire and Dennis, without hesitation, assumed the responsibility of the Northern Cambria location. Dennis’s 31 years of experience made this an easy transition. Currently, changes within Nationwide Insurance have transpired leaving Dennis Horne and his business, Horne Insurance, not only a veteran Nationwide agent, but now a full-service independent agency with multiple companies to service all of your insurance needs! Dennis, along with his experienced staff, is able to place all of your insurance needs both within Pennsylvania and Maryland. Will there be a 4th generation, family insurance agency?
