Asbestos Exposure in Seattle, WA

The city of Seattle is the county seat of King County, Washington. Located between Puget Sound and Lake Washington, Seattle is Washington's largest city, with a population of about 608,600. Established in 1851, Seattle has long had an active seaport and a diverse economy, ranging from lumber manufacturing to the aerospace and technology industries. Seattle is currently home to companies such as internet retailer, Starbucks coffee shops, supercomputer developer Cray Inc., and Todd Pacific Shipyards Seattle Division. In recent years, tourism has also become a staple of Seattle's economy, drawing visitors to the city's many museums and cultural festivals.

Seattle's early industries included flour and lumber manufacturing, sometimes at the same location. Henry Yesler built the city's first steam-powered sawmill in 1852, adding a flour mill in 1864. Yesler also established a wharf, a cookhouse and a municipal water system, and served two terms as mayor. By 1880, several more flour mills were active in the city, including the Woodard Mill and Watson and Olds Flour Company. The Aircraft Plywood Company was organized in 1929, and produced much of the fir plywood used by the Fisher Body Plant in its automobiles. Aircraft Plywood merged with U.S. Plywood in 1937. Seattle was hard hit by the labor unrest and economic woes of the Great Depression, but recovered during World War II. The Boeing Company, which operated from 1916-1965, produced bombers for the Navy. Corporate headquarters remained in Seattle until 2001. The 1980s saw an upsurge in biomedical, software and internet-related companies in the city, helping sustain Seattle's economic base into the 21st century.
