Generations of Local, Friendly Service

Founded in 1945 by Bill Herron after working in Oak Ridge at Y-12 on the Manhattan Project during World War II, Herron-Connell Insurance Agency continues today as a family owned and operated agency. As the oldest and one of the largest independent insurance agencies in Oak Ridge, Herron-Connell serves Anderson, Knox, Blount, and other surrounding counties. And in 2005, we added the "Red" Williams Insurance as a subsidiary to our agency.

Our customers have the confidence in knowing that they have the best protection from leading insurance companies, as well as the comfort and accessibility of a local agency who provides exceptional customer service and comprehensive, customizable coverage.

We offer a full range of insurance products including Property & Casualty, Life, Disability & Annuities. We work with many different types of clients ranging from single personal accounts to large commercial companies.
