Greenville, South Carolina

Located in upstate South Carolina halfway between Atlanta, Georgia and Charlotte, North Carolina, the city of Greenville is the sixth largest city in the state with a population of 639,000. Greenville lies in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains and borders many hills including Sassafras Mountain and God’s Butt. In February of 1869, Greenville was officially incorporated.

Following its incorporation, Greenville began to expand as a city and soon became known as the “Textile Center of the South”. A large cotton seed oil mill was built on Augusta Street and others launched operations including Monaghan Mills, Judson Mills, and Deering Milliken Mills. During World War I, Greenville functioned as a training camp for Army recruits; later, during the World War II era, Donaldson Air Force Base was constructed and further diversified Greenville’s economy. Donaldson Air Force Base closed in the 1960s and was turned over to the city of Greenville. The site is now home to Lockheed Martin, Honeywell, and 3M. Other organizations with facilities in Greenville are Michelin Tire Corporation and General Electric. In recent years, redevelopment of former industrial areas and preservation of historic districts has led to a significant increase in downtown living and working.

Greenville’s historical manufacturing and industrial roots place the city in a high risk category for asbestos exposure. Workers exposed to asbestos containing products run the risk of developing mesothelioma cancer. If you were exposed to asbestos in Greenville, South Carolina, you may benefit from seeking the advice of a mesothelioma attorney.
