Mesothelioma and Asbestos Exposure in Dover, New Hampshire

Dover, incorporated in 1855, is a city in New Hampshire located on the Cochecho and Bellamy Rivers. Dover is New Hampshire's oldest permanent settlement, dating from 1623. Originally a colonial seaport, Dover became a major textile producer in the 19th century. Today, Dover still retains a manufacturing presence, and the historic downtown area, which includes the Cocheco Falls Millworks and the Cochecho River Walk, supports technology and government services companies, as well as shopping and recreation.

Prior to 1800, Dover was a frontier garrison town, whose principal occupations were farming and merchant trading. Industrialization arrived with the 19th century. The growth of the textile industry in Dover echoes that of many New England towns. At the beginning of the 18th century, Dover was a prosperous and well populated town, thanks to thriving farms and a brisk trade in imported goods. Other conditions were right for industrialization: ample water power, pure water supplies, and access to shipping. The Dover Cotton Factory incorporated in 1812, and by 1826 the company was operating six textile mills using the Waltham System of vertically-integrated production and female labor. In 1827, the Cocheco Manufacturing Company was incorporated, and by 1929 had absorbed the Dover Company. In the second half of the 19th century, Irish immigrant labor replaced the Yankee mill girls and new mill buildings replaced aging structures. Pacific Mills acquired the Cocheco Print Works in 1909, but construction costs, declining demand, and the Great Depression took a heavy financial toll. Cocheco's operations shut down in 1937, and the city of Dover bought the mills at auction. For a time, they were occupied by small manufacturing concerns, but eventually the complex sat empty. In 1984, private purchasers restored the factories and converted them to office space and a restaurant.

Dover's manufacturing and construction history puts it in a high risk category for asbestos exposure. Workers in Dover who have been exposed to asbestos may be a risk to develop mesothelioma, a cancer of the lungs. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma in Dover, you may benefit from contacting Dr. David Sugarbaker. If you were exposed to asbestos in Dover and have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you should also consider contacting a mesothelioma law firm.
