Asbestos Exposure in Harrisburg, PA

Incorporated as a borough in 1791, and later established as a city in 1860, Harrisburg is the first and only Seat of Dauphin County and the capital of Pennsylvania since 1812. Situated on the east bank of the Susquehanna River, Harrisburg is rich in the history and is the region's center for finance, transportation, commerce, recreation, special events, entertainment, the arts and government. With an estimated population of 49,500, Harrisburg is the ninth largest city in Pennsylvania.

During the 19th century, the building of the Pennsylvania Canal and later the Pennsylvania Railroad allowed Harrisburg to become one of the most industrialized cities. By the latter half of the 19th century, Harrisburg was in the steel and iron industries and was the center of significant railroad activity. The Pennsylvania Steel Company plant, which opened in nearby Steelton in 1866, was the first in the country; it was later operated by Bethlehem Steel. The decades between 1920 and 1970 can be characterized by industrial decline and population shift from the city to the suburbs. Accordingly, Harrisburg shifted to a service-oriented base, with industries such as healthcare and convention centers playing a big role. Today, Harrisburg is the metropolitan center for an estimated 400 communities. Its economy and more than 7,000 businesses are diversified with emphasis in service-related industries, especially healthcare and a growing technological industry. The region’s extensive transportation infrastructure has allowed it become a prominent center for trade, warehousing, and distribution.

Harrisburg's active industrial history has put workers and others at risk for asbestos exposure and asbestos-related diseases such as mesothelioma cancer. We provide information about mesothelioma treatment options in and around Harrisburg at the bottom of this page. Mesothelioma attorneys may also be able to assist you if you or a loved one were exposed to asbestos in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
