Asbestos Exposure, Mesothelioma Doctors and Lawyers in Antioch, California

Asbestos Exposure in Antioch, CA

The town of Antioch is one of the oldest towns in California and was founded in 1850 by two brothers, William and Joseph Smith, who named the town Smith’s Landing. In 1851, the town's new minister persuaded the residents to change the town name to Antioch, for the Biblical city of Antioch, Turkey. Known as the "Gateway to the Delta", top employers in Antioch include Kaiser Permanente and the Antioch Unified School District.

Located at the juncture of the San Joaquin and Sacramento Rivers just east of Concord, Antioch began to thrive in 1859 following the discovery of coal in the hills south of town. Accordingly, coal mining formed the first substantial business apart from farming and dairying by the inhabitants of this community. The Empire Coal Company was formed by John Rouse and George Hawxhurst in 1876, which built a railroad that passed from Antioch toward the mines over what is now called "F Street" (formerly Kimball Street). In addition to the coal mining industry, companies such as Cryers Boat Yard, Fulton Shipyard, Dow Chemical, and California Paper and Board Mills operated facilities in Antioch. Today, Antioch is mainly a "bedroom" community, with most adults working in larger cities toward Oakland and San Francisco. The town has seen a tremendous amount of growth in the last 30 years, as the population of the Bay Area continues to grow, and real estate prices force families to move towards the outskirts of the Bay Area.
