Saul Horowitz State Farm Agency
The Winterville Chamber of Commerce is thrilled to announce our newest Chamber Champion is Saul Horowitz – State Farm Agent! Saul has worked with State Farm for many years, but over 12 of them were actually in claims. This is where he was able to not only benefit from tons of experience in properly helping claimants, but to first-hand witness how State Farm really strives to take care of their customers. Saul always knew he wanted to work for himself, and he felt drawn to work with people. He wanted to know he was sincerely helping – and that was exactly what he got from working for State Farm. So when the time came when he was ready to take the next step in his career…
A town is also its people. In 1880, Amos Graves Cox brought his barefoot bride to a log cabin near what is now the road to Renston. He began clearing land and eventually built their home and a store there. Like most of his neighbors, Mr. A.G. was a cotton farmer. Earlier, his father, John C. Cox, had invented a cotton planter, which Mr. A.G. improved and began to manufacture in a shop next to his store. The planters were soon in great demand and several hundreds were shipped by steamboat into the deep South each year.
