The Western National Insurance Company began from a St. Paul-based insurer for Minnesota’s creameries and cheese factories in the 1900’s. In 1915, the Mutual Creamery and Cheese Factory Liability Insurance Company of Minnesota was formed in St. Paul to insure against Liability losses. In 1925, their operations expanded to Redwood Falls, Minn. and the Mutual Creamery and Cheese Factory Tornado Insurance Company of Minnesota was formed. Over the years, the establishment grew and acquired more companies until in 1970, they became the Western National Insurance Company (headquartered in Edina, Minn.), which today, is considered to be one of the private super-regional property and casualty insurance companies catering to individual, family, and business needs all over the Midwestern, Northwestern, and Southwestern United States.
