Providing personalized service since 1928

The Millhiser Insurance Agency was established in Cedar Rapids in 1928 by Harold Millhiser. In 1947 – shortly after the end of World War II – Forrest Smith became a partner, joining Harold at the new office located on the fifth floor of the Guaranty Bank building downtown. At this time, the firm became known as the Millhiser Smith Agency.

Since, 1979, we have been located at 3100 Oakland Road NE in Cedar Rapids. We are one of the largest locally-owned independent agencies in eastern Iowa.

Why Millhiser Smith?
