Mesothelioma Doctors, Lawyers and Asbestos Exposure in Marion, Indiana

The city of Marion, with a population of nearly 30,000, occupies 13.3 square miles in central Indiana, 29 miles northwest of Muncie, and 60 miles northeast of Indianapolis. Named in honor of Francis Marion, a Brigadier General from South Carolina in the American Revolutionary War, Marion developed rapidly and was declared the county seat of Grant County in 1831. Marion is the site of Indiana Wesleyan University, the largest private university in Indiana. One of the city's notable architectural landmarks is the extensive Marion High School campus, which includes a 1,468 seat community auditorium.

Marion grew slowly for more than 50 years as an agricultural trading center supported by small farm- and forest-related industries. In the 1880s, fields of natural gas were discovered across much of east-central Indiana, and Grant County began to grow at rapidly. Marion's prosperity experienced a plateau between the end of the gas boom, just prior to World War I, when the gas boom ended, and 1955, when General Motors located a stamping and tool plant there. The paper plate industry was born in Marion; five of the nation's nine plants were located in the city. Thomson SA's Marion facility was closed in 2004, leaving the city in an economic slump. Other Marion plant closures in the past few decades include those of Ball-Foster, SCM (later Ampad) Paper Company, and the Malleable Iron Works. In the mid to late 2000s, Marion made progress in attracting new businesses, however. Today, Marion's manufacturing sector produces automotive components, paper products, foundry products, machinery, wire, and cable. The area surrounding Marion is part of the Corn Belt; as such, agriculture remains a significant component of the region's economy. Corn, soybean, and hog production is supplemented by specialty crops such as tomatoes.

Marion's lengthy history of industry and construction makes asbestos exposure an ongoing concern for workers and others, who may be at risk for developing asbestos cancer. If you were diagnosed with asbestos cancer in Marion, Indiana, you may also benefit from seeking the advice of an asbestos attorney.
