The History of Cady Insurance Agency: Cady Insurance Agency is a full-service independent insurance agency headquartered at 214 N. Main Street in downtown Burlington, Iowa. The agency was established in 1894 by R.P. (Ralph) Cady in Danville, Iowa as primarily a farm-writing agency. Mr. Cady started selling insurance throughout rural Des Moines County via horse and buggy. By the early 1960's, the agency was located on Washington Street in downtown Burlington on the site of the current parking ramp on the corner of Washington and N. Main Streets. In 1968, the office sustained major damage from a fire. The agency then moved to an office on Jefferson Street until the early 1970's, when the agency moved to the Frank Millard building at the corner of Front and Valley Streets. In 1988, the agency purchased a building located at 214 N. Main Street where the agency is now headquartered.

In 1999, the agency merged with Burlington Bank & Trust, creating the largest financial services organization in the tri-state area.

In the spring of 2001, Cady renovated a new office building located at 210 N. Main Street in Burlington, the former Arion Restaurant building. This large 2-story building, which abuts our Main Street office, has provided the agency with much needed extra office space for our growing staff. It has also created the tri-state area's largest financial services provider under one roof, as Burlington Bank & Trust, Cady, and EBS combined occupy nearly one square block of prime downtown Burlington real estate and employ over 150 full time staff members.

Cady Insurance, a market leader in personal lines, business insurance, life and health insurance for individuals and businesses, and group benefits, currently employs a staff of over 40 insurance professionals.

The History of Hopkirk & Feightner Insurance Agency: Hopkirk & Feightner Insurance Agency, located at 817 Avenue G, Fort Madison, IA, dates back to 1893 with Roland Hopkirk starting the agency and then being joined later by Jack Feightner. For the 31 years prior to 2005 the agency was owned by Gene Enke. In January, 2005 the agency became a part of the Great River Insurance Co. family. Hopkirk & Feightner Insurance Agency is the leading insurance agency in the Fort Madison area offering all lines of coverage including home, auto, life, health and especially commercial insurance. With a very experienced staff of 10, the agency provides a high level of professional service to its clientele.
