In a way you could say that Thome Insurance Agency had its start in Mount Joy. Our founder AJ Thome (also known as Grandpa) was born in the village of Milton Grove in 1914.
The village of Milton Grove now has a Mount Joy mailing address and still looks the same today as when Grandpa lived in this tiny village nearly a century ago. A little known fact is that the proper name of the town is Mount Joy and not Mt Joy. The reason is the “mount” does not refer to a mountain but to an English surname.
Many of the long-time residents still refer to the west end of Mount Joy as Florin and the other end as Staufferstown. So whether you know the community as Milton Grove, Florin, Staufferstown or Mount Joy, Thome Insurance Agency has been serving the insurance needs of individuals, families, and businesses since 1938. We are located next to the Darrenkamp’s Markets at 189 Ridgeview S, Elizabethtown. Our location is only a short drive away and has plenty of free parking for Mount Joy residents.
Thome Insurance Agency has seen many changes to Mount Joy over the years. Much of the rich farmland as given way to housing developments and apartment complexes. Now many people find it convenient to live in Mount Joy and commute to Lancaster, Harrisburg, York or even Philadelphia.
Since Thome Insurance Agency specializes in auto, home and renters insurance many Mount Joy residents want a local insurance agent who knows them and their community. We would like the opportunity to earn your trust and service your auto, home life or business insurance needs.
