In 1996, Steve Scott established his insurance restoration company to serve the Greater Cincinnati area. Steve 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.
