Prior to 1971, Mr. Thielges had a small book of insurance business, which he had acquired from his father-in-law, Mr. Differding.
Together, Ben and Don purchased the Russell Dunn agency in Canby and started the Thielges and Nemitz Insurance Agency.
In 1979, Donald’s son, Benedict, joined the agency.
On January 1, 1980, Mr. Thielges retired. The business name was changed to Nemitz Insurance Agency, and the offices were relocated to First Street in the old Canby News office building.
After Donald’s death on October 31, 1984, Benedict Nemitz purchased the agency from his mother, Elizabeth, and changed the name to Nemitz Agency, Inc.
In 1987, Ben purchased St. Leo Farmer’s Mutual General Agency from Ellen Gottskalkson and merged it into Nemitz Agency, Inc.
Christopher Nemitz joined the agency in 1988.
In 2009, Nemitz Agency relocated their offices to the fully renovated, historic P.C. Scott house on Second Street in Canby, where it remains today.
