Historic Properties.

The Historic Properties Program is specifically designed to offer the broadest range of Property, Umbrella/Excess, Business Interruption, General Liability and Auto for historic properties.

The program includes many advantages for property owners – including the ability to swiftly secure skilled craftsman, acquire architecturally unique materials and the flexibility to pay for the extra time needed to accurately identify and repair historic features. We recognize that historic assets require specific insurance solutions to ensure preservation of historical elements that make these properties so special.

Our program’s coverage and valuation approach is indicative of the product specialization needed to protect each properties’ significance, splendor, age and historic value.
