Asbestos Exposure in Saint Paul, MN

Located on the north bank of the Mississippi River in east-central Minnesota, Saint Paul is the capital and second-most populous city in the state, with an estimated population of 285,000. St. Paul, one of the "twin cities" of Minneapolis-St. Paul serves as the county seat of Ramsey County, the smallest and most densely populated county in Minnesota. Recognized for its neighborhoods, Saint Paul is partially governed by seventeen City Districts, a network of urban villages, each with its own texture of historic interest, cultural landmarks, ethnic heritage, and traditions. Saint Paul is the “Arts and Culture Capital of the Midwest”, with over 52,000 theater seats, three world class museums, and a vibrant grass roots arts community.

Founded near historic Native American settlements as a trading and transportation center, by the early 1840s, the community had become important as a trading center and a destination for settlers heading west. In 1840, Saint Paul rose to prominence when it was named the capital of the Minnesota Territory. In 1924, the Ford Motor Company's Twin Cities Assembly Plant opened in Saint Paul. Recently slated for closing, Ford now expects the plant to remain open through at least 2011 despite significant corporate losses.

In the 1960s, during urban renewal, Saint Paul razed western neighborhoods close to downtown. Downtown had short skyscraper-building booms beginning in the 1970s through the 1980s. As a business hub of the Upper Midwest, it is headquarters for companies such as Ecolab and Lawson Software. The 3M Company is often cited as one of Saint Paul's companies, though it is located in adjacent Maplewood, Minnesota. 3M employs 16,000 people throughout Minnesota.
