Mesothelioma Doctors, Lawyers and Asbestos Exposure in Fairmont, West Virginia

Nestled in the green hills of Appalachia, Fairmont, occupies 8.2 square miles in northern West Virginia. Established in 1820 as Middletown, then in Monongalia County, the city was later officially chartered by the Virginia General Assembly in 1843 as Fairmont, and currently serves as the seat of Marion County. Fairmont, the “Friendly City”, is home to more than 19,000 people. Fairmont is recognized as the "The Home of the Original Pepperoni Roll". Invented by Giuseppe "Joseph" Argiro at the Country Club Bakery in Fairmont, in 1927, the pepperoni rolls originated as a lunch option for the coal miners of north-central West Virginia.

Fairmont has a history rooted in the manufacturing and mineral extraction industries. As these industries declined it became clear that the traditional mainstays of Fairmont’s economy could no longer sustain the employment or tax base that it once provided. Accordingly, diversification of the economy would be vital to the future of Fairmont, particularly in fields of product and service technologies. As such, Fairmont has focused on re-investing in its critical infrastructure and a strategy that puts forth projects that will create an environment for development to happen. In recent years, Main Street Fairmont worked with the City of Fairmont and numerous private developers to revitalize the downtown, including renovation of several historic buildings into high-tech office space.
