Our History

La Crescent Insurance was organized in 1947 by Ralph Jones, who was also President of the La Crescent State Bank, which was located in the bank building at 104 S Walnut Street in La Crescent, MN. In 1967, the bank and agency relocated to 316 Main Street in La Crescent. That same year Lyle and Dennis Stotesbery purchased the bank and agency. Eventually Dennis became the sole owner and in 1991 he sold the bank to Merchant’s Bank. On October 1, 1992, he sold the agency to Tom Fuchsel.

In November of 1992, the agency relocated to the Knights of Columbus building at 221 N 3rd Street in La Crescent. The building started renovation in June of 2003, which added 4,400 square feet. The Knights of Columbus building took the address of 205 N Chestnut Street on January 1, 2004 and changed the name to KC Professional Center. The agency moved to the new addition on January 29, 2004 and in May of 2004 condensed the name to La Crescent Insurance.
