Mountaineer Insurance Celebrates Grand Opening of New Elkins Office

May 5, 2017


Elkins, WV — Mountaineer Insurance Services (MIS) held the grand opening of the new Elkins office location on Monday, April 24, 2017. The agency purchased the former West Virginia State Police headquarters located at 1300 Harrison Avenue in late 2016. After three months of renovations and updates, the building is ready for daily use and will become MIS’ primary office for personal insurance underwriting for the Elkins area, and the statewide hub for commercial insurance underwriting.

Originally built by the Civilian Conservation Corp in the early 1940s, the approximately 4,400 square foot building served the region as the headquarters for Company C, then Troop 3 of the West Virginia State Police for almost 75 years. With Mountaineer Insurance, the former barracks will continue the tradition as a headquarters of safety and protection for insurance clients statewide and across the country.

Due to its high maintenance standards, only minor renovations were necessary to convert the former barracks into an office building. According to MIS president Jonathan Kyle, “We are excited to preserve the history of the building and cannot wait to continue to serve the region from such a significant landmark.”

The Mountaineer building will house more than the agency, however. It will also be the new home to Luttner Financial Group, a well-respected wealth management group and a Lifetime Financial Growth Company. Two additional double-office rooms are still available for rent. Kyle hopes to attract more professional service providers, such as an accountant and a human resources company, to complement MIS’ robust personal and business consulting, as well as their risk management services, making the Mountaineer building a type of “one stop shop” for personal and corporate risk management and advancement.
