Our Evolution


As H.G. Fenton Company continues to grow and evolve, we keep a proper perspective by taking a look at the long path that has lead to our success. From humble beginnings and hard work, Henry Gilbert Fenton was able to form H.G. Fenton Contract Company in 1906. From there, the company continually reinvented itself, now flourishing as one of the region’s largest real estate organizations serving businesses and residents.
