Hart, McConahy, & Martz is the city of Erie’s oldest insurance agency and has served Erie, Pennsylvania’s insurance needs for over a century.
The history of our agency.
Over the years, four agencies in Erie have merged to form Hart, McConahy, & Martz. The Schlaudecker Company, which was started in 1872, merged with Bud James and Donald Hart in the late 1970’s to become Schlaudecker, James and Hart Inc. The agency saw more changes in 1983 and 1984 with the addition of the Renshaw Agency and the David R. McConahy Insurance Agency to form Renshaw, Hart, Grab and McConahy Inc. The agency saw one more change in 1995 with the addition of Patrick Hart and R. Carl Martz at which time the name of the agency was once again changed to it’s current name; Hart, McConahy, & Martz.
