Asbestos Exposure, Mesothelioma Doctors and Lawyers in Dalton, Georgia

Located at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the north Georgia city of Dalton serves as the county seat of Whitfield County and is the second largest city in northwest Georgia. Dalton’s land was originally occupied by the Cherokee Indians until 1838, when they were forcibly removed by an event known today as the Trail of Tears. The railroad played a pivotal role in the city’s beginnings; the Western and Atlantic Railroad was completed in 1847, connecting the Tennessee River with the Chattahoochee River, and five years later a second railroad was completed, the East Tennessee and Georgia.

Initially recognized as a cotton town due to significant manufacturers such as Elk Cotton Mills and Crown Cotton Mills, Dalton is currently known as the “Carpet Capital of the World”. The carpet industry employs over 30,000 people and is home to more than 150 carpet plants including World Carpet, Inc., Dow Chemical Company (also known as the Dow Latex Plant), and Mohawk Industries. Almost 90% of carpet produced internationally is manufactured within Dalton’s borders. The success of Dalton’s carpet industry dates back to 1917, when Catherine Evans Whitener formed the Evans Manufacturing Company. She employed her candlewick embroidery skills to open a factory that manufactured bedspreads; technology used by the factory was transferred to the manufacture of carpet and today, Dalton continues to be unmatched in its production of carpet.
