Asbestos Exposure in Tallahassee, FL

Located on the banks of Lake Jackson and Lake Lafayette, Tallahassee serves as the capital city of Florida and is the 133rd largest city in the United States. The Muskogean Indians originally inhabited the land; the name “Tallahassee” derives from one of their words meaning “old fields”. In 1824, Tallahassee was officially named the capital city and two decades later Florida became the 27th state. Tallahassee’s early educational roots brought about its current reputation as a college city. From the 1840s through 1850s two institutions were founded that presently make up Florida State University: Florida State College for Women and the Florida Institute. Tallahassee is also home to Florida A & M College.

Tallahassee’s early economic period benefited from the rich agricultural lands of the area and as a result many large plantations were built in the city. Crops consisted of cotton, corn, and sweet potatoes. The influx of Florida’s population in the 1920s set off an era of increased economic diversity and the city witnessed the opening of the Tallahassee Electric Dept, St. Marks Generating Station, and A. B. Hopkins Power Plant. The A.B. Hopkins Power Plant burns fossil fuels to convert water to steam in two gigantic boilers; the steam is then used to drive two turbines which are connected to power generators. In 1977, the plant underwent reconstruction and doubled in size after adding another boiler and power generator. The Federal Penitentiary, now known as Florida State Prison, is located in Tallahassee, as is the State Department of Agriculture.
