McArthur Insurance Agency was founded by Leon McArthur in 1917 in the Weidman State Bank. His was one of the first insurance agencies in the state of Michigan to represent Auto Owners Insurance Company, which was founded in 1916. The agency stayed in the McArthur family for three generations, owned by his daughter Yvonne Pitts and her late husband Bernie Pitts, followed by his granddaughter Jan Apple and her late husband Ron Apple. In 2005, Jan sold the agency to Kurt Feight, Terry Kunst, and Niki Mathews of Mt. Pleasant Agency – Central Insurance in Mt. Pleasant. Through their leadership and agent Kim Godden, the agency continues to thrive.
