We were originally called Madison County Mutual
Fire Insurance Company.
Over the years, we went thru several name changes. In 1989, our
final name change took place.
We are now called Hamel Mutual Insurance Company.
Hamel Mutual Insurance Company is still controlled by a group
of directors that make all-important decisions regarding our mutual.
Eligible director candidates must hold a policy with our Mutual. The Board of Directors are nominated and then elected at open annual meetings held the fourth Tuesday of March at 1 p.m.
As time passed, Hamel Mutual Insurance Company outgrew its first location. So we bought an office building on West State Street in March of 1949. In May of 1958, Hamel Mutual began construction on a new office building at the same location. This is the building we still operate in.
As Hamel Mutual Insurance Company grew, so did its coverages. We now insure against fire and lightning, wind and hail, smoke and water, theft and vandalism, and livestock and farm machinery to name a few.
