About Us

Bishop & Bishop Insurance is a full service independent insurance agency. Providing home, auto, farm, commercial, bonds, life and health insurance to consumers. We want to say thank you to our loyal customers for your trust and years of patronage.

The original agency began in 1902 and operated under the name of Shirley and Richardson Agency. Times changed as did the owners over the years. In 1952, Neal H. Bishop bought out Mr. Richardson and the agency became Shirley and Bishop. The agency would see a change of hands over the next several years but the one constant was always Neal H. Bishop. William H. Bishop joined his father and became a principle in the agency in 1992.  Neal Bishop continued to work in the agency part time until his death in September 2002. After Neal’s death, William became the sole owner and President.
