Home » About Our Agency

Your family, your business, and your possessions are all important to you, but you may not know how to best protect them. We have the experience to navigate the unique risks you face, serving as your insurance advisor.

Who we are.

We are an independent insurance agency specializing in home insurance, auto insurance, life insurancefarm insurance, and business insurance. From our offices in Columbia, KY, and Jamestown, KY, our experienced advisors are proud to serve clients of South Central Kentucky, Adair and Russell Counties, and the Lake Cumberland area. Having local knowledge and experience gives us that extra ability to prepare you for the worst and protect you for the best.

What sets us apart.

When you work with Barger Insurance Agency, we make you the priority—not the insurance company or the sale. Our team of experienced advisors work for you, our client, to find the most suitable insurance coverage at the best economical price and do so by getting to know you personally and evaluating your individual risks.

When you purchase insurance, you are transferring the risk of financial loss from yourself to an insurance carrier. If you find yourself at a time of loss, we take advantage of our ability to connect with you personally to evaluate the settlement offers, discuss the offers with you and the insurance company, and try to find an agreement. Unlike automated artificial intelligence, we utilize what we call natural intelligence; the advantage of human interaction and personal experience, and that’s what sets us apart.

Our founding and growth.

Chelsie Barger founded Barger Insurance Agency back in 1929. The agency was established on the foundation of care, trust, and honesty, values that still steer the vision of our excellent service today.

In 2001, we grew our agency and acquired Jack & Jack Insurance Agency in Russell Springs, KY. At that time, Jack & Jack Insurance Agency was a 52-year-old agency started by Jack Stephens and Jack Wolford in 1949. Together we work hard to offer our clients an unmatched experience through the same values our agency was founded on.

Our Mission Statement

At Barger Insurance Agency, our mission is very simple. We strive to provide a professional and long-lasting business relationship with our clients that provides the highest quality services and the best quality insurance products available at an economically fair price.
