Our History


The Inabnitt’s started in the insurance industry in 1962, when Carlis “Toddy” Inabnitt went to work for Farm Bureau. His territory was northern Johnson County.

In 1965, he joined Glen Newkirk to form Newkirk-Inabnitt Agency. Their office was in Bargersville. At that time they signed on with Motorists Mutual Ins. Co. which is still one of the main companies in the office.

They added Real Estate to the business as well in 1967. This continued until 1970 when the two agencies where split with Inabnitt Agency moving to Greenwood. Newkirk Agency eventually moved to Franklin.

The agency moved to 74 Main St., Bargersville in 1978. Then to our current location at 68 Main St., Bargersville in 2005.

After being with the company for 31 years Toddy retired in 1995 to enjoy golfing, part-time in Indiana and Florida.

Our Current team, which is devoted to continuing the family atmosphere and personal service that was started by Toddy are:
