The Roebling Story is a classic American saga spanning the continent and more than 200 years since John A. Roebling’s birth in 1806. The Roeblings built the Brooklyn Bridge – the “universal symbol of New York” – and the great cables on the George Washington and Golden Gate Bridges. The John A. Roebling’s Sons Company produced wire rope and wire products that helped shape modern life and provided livelihoods for tens of thousands. The Roeblings also created America’s “first sports car” and built one of America’s best company towns – “a model in every respect.” Roebling mills in Trenton now serve new uses and the Roebling Museum in Roebling, NJ, celebrates the remarkable legacy.
