When you see our sign or logo and read the line “Families Serving Families Since 1925”, what do you think of? Do you know the history of Chalk & Gibbs and how our business has grown and developed over the years? 1925 sure was a long time ago, 93 years to be exact. As a family owned and operated business, we are proud of our history, heritage and family that founded Chalk & Gibbs so many years ago.

It all began in February of 1925 when H.S. Gibbs, who at the time worked for the Bank of Morehead City, decided to leave his job to become a life insurance agent. Gibbs and close friend S.A. Chalk purchased a typewriter together and opened Equitable Life Assurance Company Agency and shortly after, Mr. Chalk left his job as the bank as well. On April 2, 1925, Mr. Gibbs and Mr. Chalk shook hands and established a partnership that still stands today. This partnership is one of the oldest in Carteret County and established Carteret County’s oldest general insurance agency, Chalk & Gibbs.

The business continued to grow over the years and their sons, William B. and Skinner A. Chalk Jr. and H.S. Gibbs Jr., joined their team in 1945 after serving in the Armed Services. Our current building was developed in 1952 and since then Chalk & Gibbs has been a part of downtown Morehead City.

Although neither Mr. Chalk nor Mr. Gibbs were natives of Carteret County, they took great interest in our community and growth. Both men served as presidents of the Morehead City Rotary Club and served as mayors of Morehead City along with other roles in the community.

Today, Chalk & Gibbs offers a full line of insurance as well as real estate services. If you’re in need of insurance coverage or are considering purchasing or selling a home in Carteret County, our family would love to assist you. Give us a call today and let us show you how we can serve you and your family!
