Agency History


The Agency was organized on December 18, 1956 by William R. Richardson. It was located in the Simpson Building in the Village of Powhatan, and operated as a single proprietorship with one employee, Mrs. Margaret Palmore.

In 1978, the Richardson Insurance Agency was sold to M. Stevens Harris and renamed the Richardson Harris Insurance Agency.

In 1981, Ruth S. Boatwright became an equal owner of the business and the name was changed to Richardson Harris Boatwright Insurance Agency, Inc.
