About Us

The agency was started by Frank and Lillian Miles in 1914. Their son, Douglas B. Miles, operated the business from 1945 to 1968. It was then sold to Clair D. Wheeler who moved it to its present location. In 1973 the Townley Agency was purchased and merged with the Miles Agency. Furman Kendall returned to Dundee the same year and joined the Agency after working at the Home Office of the Hartford Insurance Group in Hartford, Conn. In 1989 Clair (Doug) Wheeler retired and sold the business to Furman Kendall. Through the years the staff has grown to 6 persons, all fully licensed Property & Casualty Insurance Agents. Furman Kendall, Carrie Wood, Melanie Webster, Tony Warren, Barb Zebrowski, and Mark Kendall. At present the Agency serves the insurance needs of over 1900 individuals, families and businesses. Our agency includes a state of the art computer system for record keeping and special rating programs to give instant comparisons of competing insurance companies.
