Company History

Residents of Houston and Winona counties founded Mound Prairie Mutual Insurance Company in March 1884. The company operated as a fire company for many years. Eventually other perils were added to the policy, as they were needed. In 1937 the company became licensed as a “Township Mutual”, operating under Statute Chapter 67A. In 1947 the company contracted for reinsurance with Grinnell Mutual Reinsurance Company of Iowa. Grinnell remains our re-insurer today. The company operated as a Township Mutual until July of 1996, when it received a license to operate under Statutes 60A as a “Statewide” mutual. Mound Prairie Mutual was the first Township mutual to convert to statewide status in the state. As a statewide mutual, Mound Prairie can offer a full line of property coverage's for the farm and home market. In the early years, the office was located in the company Secretary’s home. In 1955 a permanent office was established in Houston MN. A new office building was constructed in 1992 on the main street of that city. The company serves the southeast region of Minnesota
