Biographical/Historical Note

"Southern Mutual was founded by a group of concerned Georgians who saw the need for a regional, mutual insurance company to provide insurance against fire for those outside of the larger metropolitan areas. Up until this point property insurance was only available from large, investor-owned, northern insurance companies. Southern Mutual was chartered by the Georgia Legislature on December 29, 1847... The home office has been based in Athens, Georgia since 1848." -- "History." Southern Mutual Insurance Company. http://www.southernmutual.com/history/ (Retrieved April 29, 2009)
