About Us

Archbold and Lewis Insurance has been providing insurance to families, individuals, and businesses since 1936. We are an independent agency, which means we are not beholden to any of the national firms.


Our customers cover most of Northeast Indiana, including: Berne, Bluffton, Columbia City, Decatur, Fort Wayne, Huntington, Markle, and Ossian. Here's how we are different:


What Sets Us Apart



As an independent agent, we offer a choice of multiple insurance carriers, coverages, price, and more. Our main focus is to find the insurance coverage that best suits your unique needs and gives you the best options. 


In addition, we know you have a choice when selecting a local independent agent. We want to continue to show how we earn your trust through our regular communication, personal relationships, and community involvement.  We want you to be a part of our agency and join us in having some fun!

Provide High Level of Service: 


To us, service means you will know who our staff members are – and not just the usual run of the mill insurance stuff.  You will know about them as people, and we want to know the same about you, so that when you call you will know who you are talking to!  We will also be available in the event of a claim. 


Being independent we work for you, not the insurance companies.  We will be there to make sure your interests are protected and not forgotten.


When most people say they are local they mean they have an office in your community.  While that is also true of us, when we say we are local we mean we are a part of your community.  We live in and are involved in various organizations that benefit our own local community. 


We believe that if we put our time and money where it matters the most we all benefit.  So, come join us at the Ossian Hometown Christmas or volunteer at one of our featured organizations, or just pop into one of our offices and say hello!

Our History

Our founding fathers of Archbold and Lewis Insurance. Pictured is Autie Lewis, Mike's father. Autie locked arms with Pete Archbold in 1975. Pete originally started writing policies in 1936!


These men both worked out of their homes, and that tradition was passed down to Mike in 1998. Archbold and Lewis Insurance did not have a storefront until 2012! Click the links below to find out a little about our current staff.
