American Heritage Corporation Enumclaw


Insurance Broker and Agency in Enumclaw, WA

American Heritage Corporation was established in 1968 by Enumclaw’s own Sutherland “Suds” McLean. Our agency has been locally owned and locally staffed since opening its doors, serving the insurance needs of the Enumclaw Plateau.

The agency was originally located on Cole Street, then moved to Griffin Ave and then back to Cole Street in 2014. Sutherland’s son, Walt McLean, purchased the agency when Suds retired in the 1980s. Mike Runland started at the agency after selling his business, Runlands Grocery on Roosevelt Ave and in 2006, Mike purchased the agency from Walt.

We have been through many changes over the years, but the principles that Sutherland McLean built the business on remain the same. That is to provide our clients with quality insurance products and the service to back it up. We have been blessed to provide that service to a large number of residents and businesses on the Enumclaw Plateau. That is truly one of the reasons we have been successful, and we sincerely thank all of our customers for their support.
