Walter Gosline established Gosline-Murchie Agency in Gardiner, Maine in 1955.  He had been a life insurance agent for Northwestern Mutual when he decided to open a general lines insurance office.  In 1973 Walter hired his son, E. Nelson Gosline, who had spent ten years as an insurance adjuster.  E. Nelson introduced Richard L Goodwin to the agency and together they purchased the Agency from Walter. Kenneth L. Bailey and G. Nelson Gosline purchased Dick’s stock in 1996. 

Readfield Insurance Agency (1992), with partner Kenneth L. Bailey, welcomed Mark Bailey as a   partner in 2011. During the 1990’s and early 2000’s the organization grew by acquiring Vannah Insurance Agency (1996) in Waldoboro, Pease Insurance Agency (2001) in West Rockport, and Quirion Insurance Agency (2003) in Augusta.  The Richmond Insurance Agency (1996) in Richmond, Kristie Rowell Insurance Services, Inc. (2000) of Hallowell, and R D Johnson Agency (2005) of South Paris also joined the family. 

Most recently Erickson Bonding and Insurance Associates, Inc. (2007) of Augusta with partner David Erickson, Gosline Retirement Planning (2006), with partner Jerry Madore, and Cornerstone Insurance Agency, of Waterville (2007), with partner Tim Martin have joined the Gosline Insurance Group family.
