One of NJ’s newest museums, the Roebling Museum opened in 2009 and sits on the seven-acre grounds of the former historic steel mill in Roebling, NJ. The museum interprets the seminal engineering innovations of the John A. Roebling's Sons Company-- builders of the Brooklyn Bridge, the Golden Gate Bridge, as well as numerous other bridges including one over Niagara Falls.
John Roebling moved his wire rope business from Pennsylvania to Trenton in 1848. By the early 20th century, the family purchased 115 acres for a new steel mill and entire town, including schools, tennis courts and baseball fields, for workers. Although the steel mill is now gone, the town remains nearly unchanged and is one of only a few existing examples of a company town.
WHAT TO SEE AND DO
- Tour the museum’s six exhibition galleries that highlight the contributions of the Roebling family and the companies they built
- Attend lectures, school programs, family-fun events, walking tours and historic house tours
