Mesothelioma Doctors, Lawyers and Asbestos Exposure in Raleigh, North Carolina

Raleigh is the capital and second largest city in North Carolina, with a population of over 400,000. In 1792, the city was named for Sir Walter Raleigh, the same year Raleigh was officially established as the new county seat and new state capital. Raleigh is one of the few cities in the United States that was planned and built exclusively to serve as state capital.

Known as the “City of Oaks” for its abundance of oak trees, Raleigh has always been a fast-growing community. The Raleigh & Gaston Railroad reached the city in 1840 and the first institution of higher learning was founded in 1857. By the early 20th century, Raleigh had evolved into a retail axis for eastern North Carolina, featuring shopping, entertainment, parades, theatres, and public performances. Raleigh’s higher education sector grew with the establishment of several women’s colleges, historically black colleges, and the present-day North Carolina State University. Local businesses such as National Linen Service Corp, Gaylord Container Corp, and the Caraleigh Mill Company diversified Raleigh’s economic climate. Today, Raleigh’s industrial base is comprised of banking and financial services, electrical, medical, clothing apparel, food processing, paper products, and pharmaceuticals. The presence of North Carolina’s Research Triangle has positively impacted the Raleigh community over the years. Research Triangle is one of United States’ most successful research parks for high-tech, biotech, and advanced textile development. North Carolina State University, Progress Energy, IBM, and Duke University and Medical Center are among the largest Raleigh employers.
