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

Extremely well presented museum, on the site of a steel cable and wire mill. The museum focuses on Roebling’s suspension bridges, the Roebling family, industrial history and social history (the town of Roebling was a company town). The site is an EPA Superfund site, so...More

Watch the 20 minute film to help you make sense of what you are visiting. This family were such visionaries, from the Brooklyn Bridge to the Golden Gate, and in between their wire cable was used and changed the how we traveled over rivers. What...More
