Charlestown Profile

Charlestown, a suburb rich in history and architectural beauty, has a significant issue related to asbestos use in its past. Asbestos, a once popular building material due to its fire-resistant properties, was widely used in the construction of many of Charlestown’s most recognizable landmarks and areas. For instance, the Charlestown Navy Yard, a historic site that dates back to the early 19th century, was known to have used asbestos in its shipbuilding operations. Similarly, the Bunker Hill Monument, another iconic landmark, had asbestos used in its construction during the 19th century. The timeline of asbestos use in these places spans several decades, from the late 1800s to the mid-20th century. The residential areas of Charlestown, known for their charming row houses and Federal-style homes, also saw extensive use of asbestos in their construction, particularly in insulation, roofing, and siding materials.

Today, the presence of asbestos in Charlestown poses significant challenges and health implications. Asbestos fibers, when disturbed and inhaled, can lead to serious health conditions such as asbestosis, lung cancer, and mesothelioma. Prominent locations like the Charlestown High School and the Charlestown City Hall have had to grapple with the issue of asbestos management. Local authorities have taken steps to ensure public safety, including conducting regular inspections, implementing strict asbestos management plans, and carrying out asbestos abatement projects. For instance, the Charlestown Navy Yard underwent a major asbestos removal project in the late 1990s to ensure the safety of its visitors. Despite these efforts, there have been significant health reports linked to asbestos exposure in Charlestown. In 2003, a study found an unusually high rate of mesothelioma cases among Charlestown residents, highlighting the ongoing health risks associated with the suburb’s asbestos legacy.
