A Company With A History

Over A Hundred Years Of Expertise

Barger Construction was founded in 1904 by Gerald Brown, Sr. as a residential building contractor. Over the past 116 years Barger has proudly continued as a third-generation family business. In 1938, after growing up in his father’s company, Gerald Jr. joined his father as a construction professional. After the death of his father, Gerald Jr. became president of the company and continued to lead the business until his death in 1985. Like his father before him, Gerald Brown III grew up on his grandfather/father’s construction sites learning the business on a daily basis. Joining the business full time in 1977, Gerald III has over 40 years of construction experience and is now the president of the company.
