About Us

For many years, The Moore Agency, Inc. has provided several of our clients with both their insurance and accounting services. Both services have grown considerably from their beginnings. The need to split the agency into two separate companies became apparent. Daniel T. Moore headed the accounting department for many years, and thus D.T. Moore and Company, LLC was born and is now handling the accounting services. Dan is now the sole owner of the accounting business. He also has expanded the accounting services by purchasing Custom Tax Service. D. T. Moore and Company, LLC has relocated to their new office across the parking lot at 217 N. Lincoln Ave. 

The Moore Agency, Inc. will now only handle your insurance needs. We feel this change will allow us to better serve your needs for both accounting and Insurance. Another change at The Moore Agency, Inc. is Diana Herron, daughter of Dwayne and Jean Moore, has been named as President and is in charge of the day-to-day operations of the Agency. Dwayne and Jean Moore remain active at The Moore Agency, Inc. but felt it was time to turn over some of the responsibilities to the next generation of the Moore family. Our intention is to remain a Moore family owned business by providing you with the kind of service that you have been accustomed to receiving from our agency.
