Mesothelioma Doctors, Lawyers and Asbestos Exposure in Evadale, Texas

Evadale, a census-designated place, is located in southwestern Jasper County, Texas situated at the confluence of U.S. Highway 96 and Farm roads 105, 1131, and 2246, twenty-five miles northeast of Beaumont. In the early 1800s, the area was named Richardson's Bluff, after Benjamin Richardson, an early settler who operated a ferry on the Neches River and who also served as postmaster. After Richardson's death in 1849, the land was sold to John A., Philip U., and Charles T. Ford. During this time the site was often referred to as Ford's Bluff.

Eventually, Ford's Bluff became a significant collection point for logs, which were floated down the river to Beaumont mills. In the late 1800s, John Henry Kirby chartered the Gulf, Beaumont and Kansas City Railway and reconstructed a tram line that already ran from Ford's Bluff to Buna. Kirby renamed the site after Miss Eva Dale, a teacher at Jasper's Southeast Texas Male and Female College, and built a mill there by 1904. By 1914, the Evadale plant, known as Mill U, included kilns, a circular sawmill, and a planing mill had a daily capacity of up to 70,000 board feet. The Kirby mill shut-down during the Great Depression. Economic revitalization started in 1948, when the Champion Paper and Fiber Company acquired riverfront acreage for a pulp mill. By the 1970s, the giant Temple-Eastex pulpwood and paper mill dominated the local economy. With this new activity, the town grew to 22 businesses and an estimated 715 residents in 1984. Today, Evadale is home to approximately 1,400 residents.

Use of asbestos containing products was prevalent for years at many commercial jobsites in Evadale, particularly at Temple-Eastex Paper Mill, Southland Paper Mill, and East Texas Pulp and Paper Mill. Thus, asbestos exposure has been a concern for workers and their loved ones.
