Asbestos Exposure, Mesothelioma Doctors and Lawyers in Elyria, Ohio

Elyria is a city on the Black River in northeastern Ohio. The county seat of Lorain County, Elyria has a current population of about 54,500. Elyria has a mix of manufacturing and service-oriented businesses, and also serves as a commuter suburb of Cleveland. Medical products maker Invacare, the Ridge Tool Company and EMC Precision Machining are all headquartered in Elyria. A glacial ravine carries the Black River through Cascade Park over a series of waterfalls that give the park its name. Elyria is also home to Lorain County Community College.

Elyria was founded in 1817. Having built both a sawmill and a gristmill on the site the previous year, a small group of settlers relocated permanently and began the work of building the new town. By 1852, Elyria was well-established, with a courthouse, schools, churches, flour mills and an iron works. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Elyria was flourishing. In 1885, the Fay Manufacturing Company began producing bicycles. In 1892, the company became Garford Manufacturing Company. Continuing in the bicycle business, Garford produced the first padded bicycle seats. Garford Manufacturing was sold again, becoming Worthington Manufacturing Company, and later Colson Company. Colson operated until 1953; their wheelchair division was the forerunner to present day Invacare. A 1907 streetcar accident prompted the creation of Elyria Memorial Hospital, which opened in 1908 with 36 beds. Today the original building still stands, surrounded by a 395-bed modern hospital complex. In the late 20th century, the economy has declined somewhat with manufacturing loss and outlying shopping malls drawing businesses away from the downtown area.
