Established in 1733, Savannah is the largest city in Chatham County and the largest port in the state of Georgia. The Port of Savannah, situated on the banks of the Savannah River near the route of the Intracoastal Waterway, propelled the city towards economic growth and community development during its first two centuries. Savannah’s downtown area is arranged into twenty-two park-like squares and is best known for the beauty of the stately oak trees draped with Spanish moss.

Savannah Overview

Agriculture initially fueled Savannah’s economy with early export commodities such as silk, indigo and cotton. Diversification in Savannah’s economy arrived in the early 20th century as heavy industry and manufacturing came into the region. In 1935, Union Camp Paper Company opened a mill upriver from the historic center of the city and within twelve years launched six paper machines, two bag plants and a box plant. Other paper companies based in Savannah include Brunswick Pulp and Paper, Gilman Paper Company, International Paper and West Virginia Pulp and Paper Company.

Savannah Shipyard developed a new shipyard on the city’s eastern region. However, it was taken over in 1942 by the United States Maritime Commission and assigned to Southeastern Shipbuilding Corporation. Eighty-eight Liberty ships were built out of this shipyard at an average cost of just over $2 million each.

Asbestos exposure in Savannah has been a recurring problem for years as a result of the area’s significant manufacturing and shipbuilding background where the use of asbestos-containing products was widespread. If you or a loved one were exposed to asbestos in Savannah, you may be at risk to develop mesothelioma cancer. This asbestos-related cancer affects over 3,000 people every year in the United States.
