BRISTOL - C.V. Mason Insurance is a family-owned agency located in the heart of Bristol and has been providing insurance protection to the Bristol community and all over Connecticut since 1883.
The agency offers all kinds of insurance plans including auto, home, and small business insurance. Due to the fact that they work with about 11 different companies, they are able to provide many options for their clients. For that reason, they are very competitive in their pricing and quality of coverage. Their aim is to keep all of their clients happy by providing the best possible insurance for their specific needs.
In today’s world of acquisitions and mergers, they are proud to still be family owned and operated.
“We strive daily to build solid, strong, lasting relationships with our clientele. Even with the evolution of technology, we offer alternative ways of communication with our clients. But there is no doubt that people still want to do business with people they know and can relate to,” said Tim Wilson, fifth generation owner of the family business.
This family business that grew generation after generation, has not only greatly succeeded over the years, but has also continued a family legacy. The Mason family has been in the insurance business even before 1883. Carlos Luke Mason operated an insurance office in the Unionville area before the Civil War.
His son, Carlos V. Mason, succeeded him and came to Bristol in 1882. He was befriended by local merchant Adrian Muzzy. His office was above Muzzy’s Store, at the corner of Main Street and Riverside Avenue.
In 1886, Mason relocated to an office over the Bristol National Bank on Main Street, next to the Gridley House.
Sometime after 1900, William Neubauer joined the agency as a partner. In 1950 C.E. Mason joined the agency, which is now owned and run by Chris Wilson, son-in-law to C.E. Mason, and Tim Wilson, great-great-grandson to C.V. Mason.
Today, C.V. Mason has been in business for 136 years and is one of the most top-rated insurance agencies in the area with over 4,000 clients. They have been part of this community for a very long time and enjoy being able to give back to the community in every way they can. They organize food drives during the holidays, staff often participate in volunteer programs, and the agency continuously makes donations to charitable organizations through their referral program.
