Mesothelioma and Abestos Exposure in East Saint Louis, Illinois

The city of East St. Louis, Illinois is located on the Mississippi River directly across from St. Louis, Missouri. East St. Louis has an area of over 14 square miles and a population of approximately 31,000. Established in 1865, the city earned its nickname, the “All American City”, after having developed a strong industrial core and community by the mid 20th century.

Stockyards, meatpacking, and coal mining shaped East Saint Louis’ early economy. The area became saturated with factories for businesses such as Aluminum Company of America, American Steel, Mobil Oil, and Pfizer Chemical. One of the most powerful forces in the chemical industry, Monsanto Chemical, opened facilities in East Saint Louis as well. Through the 1950s and 1960s, East Saint Louis experienced continuous economic prosperity thanks to its large industrial base, however, more recent deindustrialization, railroad restructuring, and freeway construction forced many local factories to close. Major corporations relocated, leading to an enormous loss of working and middle-class jobs. Despite limited financial resources, East Saint Louis is currently undergoing several redevelopment projects with the goal of re-establishing the city as a safe, attractive, suburban community.
