100 Years of Davis

And 40 years of Purves Insurance!

In 2017, we are not only celebrating the centennial of the Enterprise and the establishment of

George, Scott, and Chris

the Davis Chamber of Commerce, but we are also celebrating the 50th anniversary of the bike lane and the 15th annual Celebrate Davis! We at Purves Insurance haven’t been around for a hundred years just yet, but we do have a long history of supporting our community.

Purves & Associates Insurance Agency was established in 1972. Since then, three generations of Purves family members have worked in the office on 4th Street. Of course, though, we consider all of our associates to be family!
We love our town, and have been proud sponsors of many community events and organizations since the beginning, including: Davis Youth Sports, DHS Grad Night, the Yolo County SPCA, the Yolo County Food Bank, and more!
We also know how to have fun. One of our most popular annual events is our Halloween Costume party, where each of our employees compete to be the spookiest and best-dressed! If you get the chance, stop by the office during Orange October to Trick or Treat–or to join us while we cheer on our San Francisco Giants.
While a lot of the business side of story is also on our About page, we thought it would be fun to travel back in time from a more personal perspective. As part of the 2017 Centennial celebration, we sent a little bit of our own story to the Davis Enterprise. Look for their upcoming special edition and read more about your California Insurance Agency of Choice!
