Asbestos Exposure in Louisville, KY

Louisville is situated on the Ohio River in north-central Kentucky. In 2003, Louisville and Jefferson County officially merged into a consolidated city-county government named Louisville Metro. As of the 2010 census, Louisville, in its consolidated form, had a population of approximately 741,000. Because it includes counties in Southern Indiana, the Louisville metropolitan area is often referred to as Kentuckiana. Although situated in a Southern state, Louisville is influenced by both Southern and Midwestern culture. It is sometimes referred to as either the northernmost Southern city or the southernmost Northern city in the United States. Founded in 1778 and named after King Louis XVI of France, Louisville is best known today as the location of the Kentucky Derby, which was held in the city for the first time on May 17, 1875. Louisville is also home to several institutions of higher learning including the University of Louisville.

Louisville's early economy first developed through the shipping and cargo industries. Its strategic location at the Falls of the Ohio, as well as its unique position in the central United States also made Louisville an ideal location for the transfer of cargo along its route to other destinations. The Louisville and Portland Canal and the Louisville and Nashville Railroad were important links in water and rail transportation. Louisville's significance to the shipping industry continues today. For years Louisville was home to Dupont, the world's largest producer of synthetic rubber during World War II; International Harvester Corporation, which began large-scale production of tractors and agricultural equipment; and Brown & Williamson, the third largest company in the tobacco industry before merging with R. J. Reynolds in 2004 to form the Reynolds American Company. Today, two major Ford plants and a major General Electric appliance factory are located in Louisville. Additionally, one-third of all of the bourbon whiskey comes from Louisville. The Brown-Forman Corporation is one of the major makers of bourbon, which is headquartered in Louisville. Other major distilleries of bourbon can be found both in the city of Louisville, and in neighboring cities in Kentucky. Recently, Louisville has emerged as a major center for the health care and medical sciences industries.
