Woodmen of the World Design originates from a large privately held insurance company based in Omaha, Nebraska. The purpose of Woodmen of the World was to make life insurance affordable to everyone, and for a time, all insurance policies included a tombstone shaped like a tree stump. The history of this organization includes numerous philanthropic efforts, community outreach projects, and its distinctive tombstones found across the country. The iconic tombstones were discontinued by 1930.
