In 1996, Steve Scott established his insurance restoration company to serve the Greater Cincinnati area. He chose the name Olde Fort Restoration in honor of the area’s rich history of forts and batteries like Ft. Washington, Ft. Hamilton, Ft.Wright , Ft. Mitchell, and Ft. Thomas The fort represents security for those under its protection.

In that spirit, Olde Fort Restoration defends and aids the recovery of its clients from all forms of disaster.
