A customer states: “Most experienced company around – Sold my cabin myself and they were extremely helpful with all the little details. They also quoted me the best price of the four companies I called, after all the costs that is. They were very upfront with what all the costs would be and helped me understand just what I was paying for.”
In 1855 Richard L. Hall Sr. founded R.L. Hall Abstract Company on the kitchen table of his home in Oconto. This table is presently on display in the kitchen of the Beyer Home Museum. Originally from Ithaca, New York R.L. Hall arrived on West shore of Green Bay in 1844. He is the son of Dr. Jonathan Cory Hall, one of the founding fathers of the City of Marinette. Hall was already a practicing surveyor at the young age of 18, and by the early 1850’s had laid out many of Oconto County’s earliest roads, including the Fort Howard to Menominee Road. After graduating from business college he formed the county’s first title company. In the 1850’s abstracts of title were hand written under lamp light with quill pens dipped in ink. Document copies were made using a heavy water press copier.
In its sixth generation, Hall Title is presently owned by Peter Stark and David Hall.
