Our History

Louisville Title was founded in 1946, starting as a branch office of our parent company, Louisville Title of Cleveland, Ohio. Louisville of Cleveland was an agent for Louisville Title Insurance Company of Louisville, Kentucky. The Toledo office was purchased from Cleveland in 1956. Louisville Title was incorporated in 1958, becoming Louisville Title Agency for N.W. Ohio, Inc.

Louisville Title bought and relocated to the 8th story of Louisville Building at the corner of Madison and Erie Streets. It was the former building of Toledo’s Home Federal Bank, and is now where our main office is located.

Louisville Title is currently underwritten by two of the largest title insurance companies in the world: Old Republic National Title Insurance Company and First American Title Insurance Company. We remain the largest locally owned title company in Northwestern Ohio and are now under the management of John W. Martin, the CEO; and Jim Lindsay, the company’s co-owner, president, and legal counsel.
