Visited the site of the former Roebling steel mills where wire was made to build the famous bridges. In the mid 80's, the EPA declared the area toxic when the mill was demolished. All that remains is a tiny building used as the museum. More...More

John A. Roebling designed and engineered the “Brooklyn Bridge”. His son, Washington, continued his engineering work after his death. Emily Warren, Washington’s wife, facilitated the bridges construction when Washington fell ill from the bends. Roebling Works also made the cable for the “George Washington Bridge”...More

Bridge maker, steel maker, inventor of the cable-type suspension manufacturing at the turn of the 20th century. From California to New York, you can find Roebling bridges. Also ask about the Titanic connection with the Roebling family.

Like Batsto,NJ and even more so Smithville Park,NJ - Roebling can be added to a "must see" list for New Jersey history lovers. 1.2-square-mile town was created in the very beginning of 20th century completely from scratch by the company of a well known industrialist...More
