About State Farm Home Insurance

Found in 1922, by Illinois farmer G.J. Mecherle, State Farm started small with a focus on good service and great value.

The original mission was to treat its customers fairly and to do right by them. By remaining in the communities 100 years later, that mission still seems to hold true, and even has a presence in its business tagline: Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there.

Its commitment to safety education is apparent with his community programs aimed at reducing injury and loss, as well as teaching safety, especially to young drivers.

Today, the company handles 84 million policies.
