Asbestos Exposure in Saint Petersburg, FL

Located on a peninsula between Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, Saint Petersburg, Florida is known variously as St. Pete, The Burg and The Sunshine City Saint Petersburg was cofounded by John C. Williams, who purchased the land in 1876, and by Peter Demens, who was responsible for bringing the Orange Belt railroad terminus to the city in 1888 With almost 360 days of sunshine per year, Saint Petersburg has become a popular retirement destination. However in recent years, the city has moved towards a more youthful tendency.

Saint Petersburg’s first major industry came about in 1899, when Harry W. Hibbs established a wholesale fish business at the end of the railroad pier The pier extended out into the shipping channel; it was a prime location for the business and within one year Hibbs Fish Company was shipping 1,000 pounds of fish per day The early 20th century brought a real estate boom, hotels, and bridges to the Saint Petersburg community During World War II, the U.S. Air Corps used local hotels to station troops Over the years, Saint Petersburg’s economy has been able to rely on one key industry power and utility Florida Power Corporation, also known as Florida Power Corp, was established in 1927 and continuously expanded to become one of the largest utility holding companies in the early 20th century The company continues operations today at their Bartow Power Plant (originally named Paul L.
