Unique Bond Between Agent and Company
In 1878, Silas B. LeSourd founded the S.B. LeSourd Insurance in Xenia, Ohio. For 145 years, LeSourd Insurance, now part of The Brooker Family of Business, has served Xenia and the surrounding Greene County Community.
In 1892, the Westfield Agents Association was formed to strengthen the relationships of mutual trust and responsibility between our agents and our company. The guest speaker was Governor William McKinley.
In 1848, a small group of hard-working farmers joined together to form an insurance company to protect their property. Initially known as The Farmers Mutual Fire Insurance Company of Medina County, the name was changed three years later in 1851 to Ohio Farmers Mutual Fire Insurance Company. The Company evolved to be what is the quiet but trusted Midwestern staple of insurance for 175 years – Westfield.
Ohio Governor, Mike DeWine congratulates Westfield on creating a legacy of caring and embracing future-focused thinking to become the company we are today.
