Blackmer Insurance Agency was founded in 1934 in Shelburne, Massachusetts as the Ralph E. Blackmer Insurance Agency, by Ralph Blackmer as a part-time agency specializing in insurance for Grange members. The business grew and in 1944 Mr. Blackmer was working full-time and added several other insurance companies and new products. Since that time the agency has grown and now works with more than a dozen insurers on a regular basis.
Today, we continue as a local insurance agency dedicated to serving individuals, families and businesses in Franklin County and beyond, but with a few differences: We are pleased to be a member of Renaissance Alliance, a partnership that affords us access to dozens of premier insurance companies, allowing us to scan the market for the best insurance products and services at the best price for you, our customers. We also have access to better technology allowing us to serve you better and we’re pleased to offer paperless services to help foster a healthier environment. No matter how many changes, we still offer the same local commitment to you and to our community!
