History of Granite Insurance

It was 1936 when Dr. A. D. Abernethy, Sr., a local dentist and community and business leader in Granite Falls, realized the need to open Granite Insurance Agency.  He saw the need to partner with local residents and business owners to provide risk management advice and a means to provide the security necessary for their success.  Later in 1954 the business was incorporated as Granite Insurance and Real Estate Agency, Inc. with three stockholders: Dr. A. D. Abernethy, Sr., Dr. Joseph W. Abernethy, and Floyd Annas.  In 1957 Floyd Annas and his wife Theresa purchased all outstanding stock in the agency.  This was the beginning of a multi-generational family owned business that is now known simply as Granite Insurance.

Since 1936 the business has changed locations four times to accommodate growth.  The most recent move was in 2014 when the agency relocated to 56 North Main Street, Granite Falls.  The agency's commitment to the local community is evidenced by the fact that all four locations have been within 1/3 of a mile of each other.

Today we at Granite Insurance continue our tradition of partnering with both personal insurance clients and business owners to provide expert advice on how to best manage and transfer risk.  Each plan is individually crafted by our professional staff based on the unique needs of each client.  As a part of Keystone Insurers Group, one of America's largest insurance organizations, we are able to offer the resources of a large national insurance firm.  However, we are still locally owned and actively managed by the Annas family.
