About Us - Browning Reagle

About Us

Our Company

While our agency was not established until 1957, there has been a Browning at this location since the 1930’s. Lindsay Browning had her grocery store here, which also included a lunch counter.

In 1957, Lindsay’s son, C. Robert Browning, was approached by an Erie Representative about entering the insurance field. After much consideration, C. Robert decided to enter the field on a part-time basis. For many years, Mr. Browning operated both the grocery store and insurance office from this location.

Over a decade later, in 1973, Mr. Browning closed the grocery store in order to concentrate on the insurance business full time. In 1984, his son, Bob Browning, joined his dad and purchased the business shortly thereafter when his dad retired.

Dave Reagle joined Bob as a partner in 2003 – and two years later, ownership was passed to Dave and Kevin Murphy.

Along the way, Browning Reagle has earned numerous awards and accolades, including the most prestigious award given by the Erie Insurance Group – given to just one agency each year – the F.W. Hirt Quality Agent Award in 2012
