Our History

This is “our” history – yours and ours!  Since 1922 AMERICAN INSURANCE has become an inseparable part of the communities it serves. Our history is also the history of the business and civic leaders who helped shape and build our local communities.

We invite you to celebrate 100 years with us!

We're celebrating 100 years in 2022! Since 1922 (when we were insuring Model-T Fords) up to the present day, we have historic pictures, articles, and advertisements to share with you. Learn about the “who”, the “why” and the “events” that shaped our history and our local community.

Four Sullivan generations have had the privilege to touch the lives of thousands of our neighbors - as customers and employees, as claimants who receive needed insurance benefits, or as civic support and leadership to make our community strong.

What does it take for a business to last more than 90 years?
It takes the time, talents, and hard work of excellent employees and the goodwill and loyalty of wonder customers like you! So, with a deep sense of gratitude we share our history with you. “Thank you” for sharing your life with us and for your continued trust and support.
