Mesothelioma Doctors, Lawyers and Asbestos Exposure in Milledgeville, Georgia

Milledgeville is the antebellum capital of Georgia, serving as the state’s capital city from 1803 to 1868. Milledgeville’s central location and rich land adjacent to the Oconee River attracted settlers to the area in early days. The land was developed into a combination of broad streets running parallel with the four points of a compass and public squares of twenty acres each. Its appealing layout earned Milledgeville the slogan it is known for today, “Capitals, Columns and Culture”, and is the only surviving example of a complete Federal period city. Central State Hospital, Georgia’s first and largest public psychiatric hospital, opened its facilities in 1842 and continues to be a major employer in Milledgeville.

Like many southeastern cities, Milledgeville blossomed through the turn of the 20th century as the cotton and textile industries expanded. The boll weevil hit the Milledgeville area in 1915, wiping out the bulk of their cotton crops, however, Concord Fabrics and several other resilient companies still operate facilities in the city. In 1929, Georgia Power Company began construction of a dam which created the 15,000 acre lake now known as Lake Sinclair. However, the Great Depression delayed construction of the dam; it was not completed until 1953. The final cost of the dam was double the initial estimate. The lake community developed into an increasingly important part of Milledgeville’s social and economic identity. In following years, Georgia Power Company built Plant Harley, a coal-burning facility located on Lake Sinclair.
