Our History

Browning Reagle – Your Local Insurance Company

There has been a Browning at this location since the 1930s. Lindsay Browning had his grocery store here on Main Street for many years, 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, Mr. Browning decided to get into the field on a part-time basis. For many years, Mr. Browning operated both the grocery store and insurance office from this location.

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

In 2003, Dave Reagle became President as Bob continued in sales. In 2005, Dave and Kevin Murphy formed an LLC. Today, Ruth Ann Benson, C. Robert’s daughter remains a vital part of our outstanding staff of professional customer service agents and producers!

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 1986 and 2011.
