About Horn-McGowan Insurance
In 2008, the Gerald J. Horn Insurance Agency merged with McGowan Agency to become Horn-McGowan Agency.
History of Gerald J. Horn, Inc. Agency
The founder of our agency was Gerald J. Horn, who started the agency from his Chicago home back in 1959. He passed the agency on to his three sons, Bill, Bernie, and Jerry Horn.
Over those years the agency was located at 2554 West Montrose Avenue, 5539 West Diversey Avenue, and 5752 West Addison Street in Chicago. In December 2006, the agency relocated to its current address at 10600 West Higgins Road #524 in Rosemont, Illinois (adjacent to O’Hare Airport).
Bill Horn retired in April of 2007 and the agency is now being run by his sons, Terry and Dan Horn. We are proud of our three generations of serving our clients in the Chicagoland area.
We feel that we have the right staff and represent the right companies to continue to provide great personal insurance service.
