Murray D. Lincoln formed the company the Farm Bureau Mutual Automobile Insurance Company with the goal of selling auto insurance at low rates for farmers in Ohio. In 1926, the first policy was sold. In 1928, Farm Bureau Mutual begins to expand into other states including West Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, Vermont, and North Carolina. By 1934, the company was insuring motorists in metropolitan areas and writing property insurance policies too and by 1943 was operating in 12 states and the District of Columbia. It was in 1955 that the company changed its name to nationwide, with an expansion into 20 new states.
