 Somers Insurance Celebrates 52 Years

In 2006, Somers Insurance Agency, Inc. began celebrating their 52nd year in Lindsay, Oklahoma. Charlie Somers started Somers Insurance Agency in 1954 at 105 E. Chickasaw in Lindsay.

In the years prior to starting his business, Charlie had acquired a good deal of oil field related insurance expertise while he was a field representative for two different insurance companies that wrote oil field related business. While regularly calling on independent insurance agents here in Lindsay, Charlie developed an appreciation for the town and its people and realized that the expertise he had acquired would be beneficial if he were to strike out on his own.

So, he borrowed $1,500 from a friend near his hometown of Tonganoxie, Kansas and bought a manual Underwood typewriter (which is still in the office) and opened shop.

He went door to door in the summer of 1954, introducing himself to residences and business in Lindsay and quickly gained a reputation as a knowledgeable and very personable young man. In about 1956, he moved to 112 S. Main Street where they are still located.

Charlie's son, Mike, joined him in the business March 1, 1977 and purchased the agency from his dad December 1, 1985. Mike is continuing in his dad's tradition of providing commercial insurance for the oil field industry as well as all other types of commercial and personal insurance.
