In the late 1940's, the dream of two men in Walnut Ridge was to open an Insurance and Real Estate office. D. Leonard Lingo, a well known attorney (Ponder & Lingo, Attorneys) and Robert H. Smith, Sr., a farmer and banker, open doors of the Lawrence Insurance Agency in 1948.
Lawrence Insurance Agency, Inc. had its beginnings & shared offices with Ponder & Lingo Law Office in Walnut Ridge. Later, we moved into a portion of the First National Bank on Main Street, where it remained for many years.
As the agency grew, they moved to another location within a few blocks of the original location. As the years progressed, the second generation of family joined the agency. In 1968, Ted Coker took over as manager of the Insurance and Real Estate.
Third generation family member David Coker, joined the agency in 1981. Again, as the agency grew more space was needed and in 1986 we moved to our current location at 124 W. Main Street in Walnut Ridge.
In 2000 with the purchase of the Jim Watson Insurance we expanded into Paragould. Expansion into Pocahontas when Singley Insurance was acquired in 2003. Both names were changed to Coker Insurance, Inc.
