Asbestos Exposure in Anaheim, CA

The city of Anaheim is located in Orange County, California and is best known for its theme parks, sports teams, and convention center. The city's name is a composition of "Ana" from the nearby Santa Ana River and "heim", German for home. Founded by grape farmers and wine makers from Bavaria in 1857, the city quickly developed into an industrial center, producing electronics, aircraft parts, and canned fruit. Today, the presence of Disneyland accounts for over 20,000 jobs, making it by far the largest employer in the city.

Before Disneyland was built in 1955, the city of Anaheim was a massive rural community inhabited by orange groves and the landowners who farmed them. As the Disneyland complex was constructed, the land changed from walnut and orange trees to hotels and motels. By the end of the 1950s, Anaheim had become a modern day boom town. The park brought many jobs to Anaheim and those who helped create Disneyland often purchased homes in the city. More importantly, Disneyland spurred other industries into building or relocating to Anaheim such as the Crystal Chemical Company, General Electric Company, and US Industrial Chemical Company (Natdcc). There was an instant need of housing for the seasonal tourists, and places like Royal Coach Motor Hotel sprung up around the Disneyland property. By the 1970s, the city had expanded to include the Anaheim Convention Center and the ever popular professional baseball team, the Angels.
