Goodville Mutual was founded in 1926 by a small group of Mennonite
men who were aware of the growing need for automobile insurance
in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. They created a company
on the principle of bearing one another's burdens. Although
this vision reflected the Anabaptist beliefs of service
and mutual aid, it was agreed that the company would serve
the wider community.
Since 1926, Goodville Mutual has enjoyed growth
and stability and has expanded to include coverage for homes,
small businesses, farms and churches in nine states. With
strong support from professional independent agents who
have been the cornerstone of our success, Goodville Mutual
currently has annual revenues exceeding $68 million with
assets exceeding $140 million.
