About our Agency
Sixty years of Service
This year McFadden Insurance celebrates its 60th anniversary.
J. Percy McFadden launched the agency in 1951 in an upstairs office of the First National Bank at Carrollton. Since then, we've grown several times, and relocated to three more locations.
Today McFaddens is owned by agents Rick Truman and Chris Jones, who purchased it from agent/owners Dick Truman and Bob Jones.
Yet McFaddens also represents the hard work of a number of other local businessmen, through agencies purchased over these six decades. The Jack Moreland Agency, the E.E. Wallace Agency, the Perry Hess Agency, and the Poole Agency all became part of McFadden during Percy's time at the helm. Later, Chris and Rick purchased the Frank Chiurco agency (formerly owned by Bob Newell).
In the years since, McFadden has been a steady presence at the top of the square in Carrollton, helping families to plan for the accidents and setbacks life brings, and to recover in the times when help is needed most.
