Lakeside Insurance Agency Becomes Cornerstone Insurance Services

Lakeside Insurance Agency, Inc. has roots back to 1952, the year New Town was established. That rich history will carry on with Cornerstone Insurance Services, Inc. The insurance agency will continue to be located in New Town’s Cornerstone Bank while serving not only New Town, but also the surrounding areas of Parshall, Plaza, Makoti, Ryder, Stanley, Keene, and Watford City.

Cornerstone Bank Chairman Gary Petersen says, “Our clients will continue to receive the great local service that they deserve. We are excited to bring the insurance services under the Cornerstone umbrella.”

Cindy Peterson is the Insurance Agent at Cornerstone Insurance Services. She recently came back to the insurance industry after working as a banking assistant at Cornerstone Bank in Parshall. She brings 10 years of insurance experience and holds a degree from North Dakota State University. Cindy farms and ranches with her husband David Peterson of Ryder on their 4th generation family farm. Eugenia Anton will continue to be an associate with Cornerstone Insurance.

Cornerstone Insurance Services will continue to provide the same full-range of insurance services as Lakeside Insurance Agency did including everything from auto insurance to homeowners insurance, to farm and commercial insurance, along with insurance for recreational vehicles and watercraft, and more.

Peterson says, “We work with many different insurance companies, which gives us great options to find you the best insurance company and coverage to fit your needs.”
