Mesothelioma Doctors, Lawyers and Asbestos Exposure in Hot Springs, Arkansas

Hot Springs is a city in Garland County, Arkansas. The city is best known for its namesake thermal springs, which have attracted tourists and entrepreneurs since the early 19th century. The 143°F waters emerge from a network of 47 natural springs, which feed a number of local bathhouses, hotels, and drinking fountains. The springs are federally protected as part of Hot Springs National Park. Located within the park's boundaries, the downtown Bathhouse Row district preserves a number of Belle Époque bathhouses, including Fordyce Bathhouse, which is now a museum and visitor center, and two working bathhouses, Buckstaff and Quapaw.

From 1673 to 1803, the territory which included Hot Springs was under French and Spanish control. With the Louisiana Purchase, the land became part of the United States and was opened to settlement in 1818. In 1832, Congress created the Hot Springs Reservation to protect and preserve the area's signature feature. Hot Springs rebuilt after the Civil War. Spa vacations were becoming popular among the middle class and the construction of railroads, bathhouses and luxury hotels such as the Arlington Hotel brought a lively tourist trade. Prior to World War I, Hot Springs was also a spring training location for several major league baseball teams. In 1913, a major fire destroyed 60 blocks of Hot Springs, including several hotels, businesses and a theater. The city rebuilt, and during the 1920s, began to attract an illegal gambling trade, which continued through the early 1960s. In 1942, the Army and Navy General Hospital was built for recovering soldiers to take advantage of the springs' therapeutic properties. Today, the facility operates as the Arkansas Rehabilitation Center. Tourism remains a major industry in Hot Springs, which offers annual music and film festivals and thoroughbred horseracing at Oaklawn Park, which has held race meets since 1904.

Hot Springs has long had an active commercial construction industry, at times when asbestos-containing construction materials were widely used. Workers and their loved ones who have been exposed to asbestos may be at risk for malignant mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases. If you were diagnosed with asbestos cancer in Hot Springs, you may also benefit from seeking the advice of an asbestos attorney.
