Mesothelioma Doctors, Lawyers and Asbestos Exposure in Columbia, South Carolina

Columbia is the capital and largest city in South Carolina, with a population of approximately 129,000 people. Columbia is located at the confluence of the Saluda River and Broad River and lies 13 miles northwest of South Carolina’s geographic center. Nicknamed “The Capital of Southern Hospitality”, Columbia is home to the University of South Carolina and Fort Jackson, the U.S. Army’s most active entry training installation.

After becoming a chartered city in 1854, Columbia experienced rapid growth and by 1907 had become a regional textile manufacturing hub. Olympia Cotton Mills, Palmetto Compress Company, and four other mills operated facilities in Columbia, employing over 3,400 workers. Over the years Columbia served as home to numerous manufacturing facilities, including A.P. Green Refractory Company, Industrial Firebrick Company, Pacific Mills, and U.S. Rubber Company. In 1917, Columbia was selected as the site of the United States military’s Camp Jackson but was shut down immediately following World War I. The site was reactivated for World War II and renamed Fort Jackson; the installation is currently one of the oldest in the country and operates Basic Combat Training for new recruits. Around the turn of the 21st century, Columbia’s worn down warehouse district became the center of a revitalization project. Following completion, the area has transformed into a prosperous district of art galleries, shops, and restaurants.
