Des Moines is the most populous city in Iowa as well as the state capital and county seat of Polk County. Des Moines was originally founded as Fort Des Moines at the intersection of the Des Moines River and Raccoon River. In 1846 the original fort was abandoned and later occupied by settlers. The city was incorporated in 1851 as Fort Des Moines which was later shortened to “Des Moines”.

Agriculture and mining thrived in Des Moines which had an abundance of natural minerals. The first mining operation began in Des Moines in 1864 and by the turn of the century there were over 20 mines operating in Des Moines. Railroads were drawn to Des Moines because of this coal supply and the city experienced a population boom as the Rock Island Railroad was established tying Des Moines to Chicago. The wealth that developed in Des Moines lead to mass construction of buildings and fountains along the Des Moines river as well as a warehouse and manufacturing district. Factories in Des Moines included packing plants, foundries, farm product processing as well as chemical and mineral products such as cement, gypsum and coal.

The history of industrial factories, coal mining and railroading in Des Moines includes many job sites where asbestos containing products were widely used, putting workers at risk of developing mesothelioma cancer from asbestos exposure.
