In the early 1920s, I. Munn Boardman was working as Henry Hickok’s chauffeur while working his way through college. Upon graduating from UVM in 1922, he joined Mr. Hickok and became a partner a few years later. In 1925 the name of the agency was changed to Hickok & Boardman. At the death of Mr. Hickok in 1931, I. Munn Boardman purchased the agency.
In 1968, I. Munn Boardman Sr. sold his business to his three sons, Munn, Jr., Bob, and Dave. By this time the company had expanded to include real estate and life insurance sales, as a supplement to the existing property and casualty insurance business. Those expansion plans later became the launch platforms for three other vibrant businesses which bear the Hickok & Boardman name. In 1971, the company built our present headquarters office at 346 Shelburne Road and then began expanding throughout the state. The St. Albans office came first in 1979, followed by our Stowe office in 1988.
