Asbestos Exposure in Gainesville, FL

Gainesville, Florida is the largest city in Alachua County and is centrally located five hours from Atlanta and Miami. Once a Timucuan Indian settlement, the area is now home to the third largest university in the country, the University of Florida. In 1854, Gainesville became the county seat of Alachua County and on April 15, 1969, the city was officially incorporated. The popular sports drink, Gatorade, was invented in Gainesville for use by the University of Florida’s football team. Since its founding in 1905, the University of Florida has remained vital to local economy.

After the turn of the 20th century Gainesville witnessed the collapse of the cotton and phosphate industries that once carried the city; however, the University of Florida’s emergence revived the area and paved the way towards the future. Neighborhoods expanded and utilities were established such as Gainesville Gas Company and Gainesville Regional Utility. Following this development, several companies established sites within the city including, Deerhaven Power, General Elec Company, Koppers Company, Inc., and Florida Industrial Corp.
