Insurance

Town mutual insurance companies are the oldest cooperatives in the United States, the first one organized in Philadelphia by Benjamin Franklin in 1752. Many town mutuals got their start when neighbors joined together to insure their farms and homes—usually because big insurers ignored them or charged exorbitant prices. Town mutuals in Minnesota and Wisconsin have served farmers, rural homeowners, and small main-street businesses for about 150 years. Cooperative Network organizes an annual lobby day event for mutual insurance companies in Wisconsin.
