Our Story

Taylor & Associates Insurance Agency is a local family-owned independent insurance agency in Preble County, Ohio. Our story began in 1982 when Robert Taylor opened the agency out of his Lewisburg home. Robert is now retired, but his daughter and son-in-law, Karen and Bill VanBrederode, now operate the agency out of its current office located at 221 N. Commerce Street, Lewisburg, Ohio, 45338.

We’re honored to serve the Village of Lewisburg because we live and work here, too. Lewisburg is enriched with beautiful parks, excellent schools, and churches, a plethora of shops and restaurants, but most of all, it is filled with hardworking people. Whether you live here or are visiting the area from Montgomery, Darke, Miami, Wayne, or other counties, you’ll notice that each person is treated like a neighbor. 

As an insurance agency, we continuously shop around to find the best prices for our customers. We strive to provide honest, transparent business to those who live in Lewisburg and welcome those who live in Arcanum, Eaton, West Alexandria, New Paris, West Manchester, Camden, Gratis, Englewood, Vandalia, Greenville, and Brookville, Ohio, as well as Richmond and Centerville, Indiana as customers. 

Walking down the street, familiar faces will greet you as you pass by. Whether you’re grabbing your morning coffee at Brick Rhod Antiques and Bistro, or you’re finishing up your day with a creamy ice cream treat at A Cherry on Top, you will never be treated as a stranger. 

During the warmer months, there’s nothing like eating a hot dog and cheering on the Dayton Dragons at Fifth Third Field. On fall nights, you may catch a Tri-County North Panthers football game or even get the chance to see the much-anticipated yearly game against the Twin Valley South Panthers. 

Home to Cargill, Pratt Industries, Royal Canin-Mars Corp, and local shops like Doc’s Holiday Village Shoppe, Yankee Clover Mercantile, Country Charm, Livin’ on Dreams Boutique, and Haven, Lewisburg, Ohio is a must-see throughout any season. 

As your local insurance neighbor, we know how tough it can be to find the right insurance coverage. Once you do, however, there’s nothing like knowing that you are covered for all the unexpected occurrences that life can often bring. Whether you’re adding a new driver to your auto insurance policy, or are in need of a homeowner’s insurance policy after purchasing a new home, we know that these life events are not something to take lightly.

We work to find the best coverage to fit the needs of you and your family. Sometimes that means filling in the gaps with an umbrella insurance policy to ensure that you are insured in all of the right places. Other times it means getting coverage to a collector vehicle, opening a life insurance policy to protect your family, or simply adding renters insurance to your current car insurance coverage for your college student heading off to school.

Come see why Taylor & Associates Insurance Agency is proud to serve Lewisburg, Ohio, and its surrounding areas; there is not a place quite like it! Whatever your situation may be, our family is proud to serve yours.
