Asbestos Exposure, Mesothelioma Doctors and Lawyers in Cicero, Illinois

Bordered on the north and east by Chicago, the city of Cicero is the nearest suburb to the downtown Chicago area. Cicero is named after the Roman statesman and orator, Marcus Tullius Cicero. Due to years of weak political leadership, present-day Cicero is less than one-sixth its original 36 square-mile size.

In the mid-nineteenth century, the Galena and Chicago Union Railroad laid tracks through Cicero, making it the first suburb connected to Chicago by railway. As a result, Cicero’s population multiplied and the city became officially incorporated in 1869. Additional rail lines came to the city and influenced the growth of the manufacturing industry. Brighton Silver Smelting & Refining Company, Electrocast Steel Foundry, and Brighton Cotton Mill opened their doors. In 1904, Western Electric established an equipment manufacturing plant in Cicero that employed over 20,000 people; the number dwarfed the city’s population of 14,557 at the time. Cicero’s community experienced significant racial tensions and criminal activity from the mid to late 20th century, as many Hispanics moved into neighborhoods and Al Capone formed his criminal empire. The city has overcome these issues in the present day and, with the help of consistent political leadership, continues to develop into a modern-day suburban town.
