About McCormick Insurance Agency, Inc.

Insurance Agency  | McCormick Insurance Agency, Inc | Vincennes, IN

In 1960, Don McCormick started McCormick Insurance Agency on his farm in southern Knox County, Indiana. In addition, Don was the manager of a local county farm mutual, Farmers Home Insurance Company of Knox County which was founded in 1895. As the insurance business grew, Don and his sons moved the office into Vincennes at the corner of Washington Street and Weed Lane in 1987.

Today, the agency is owned by partners Doug Steele and Lee Tuggle, who have both been with McCormick Insurance over 20 years. Since then, McCormick Insurance Agency has thrived as a well-established independent insurance agency. We serve not only Knox County and southwest Indiana, but all of the state, as well as several surrounding states, including Illinois and Kentucky.
