Roebling, N.J.: A place of industry and history

Roebling, N.J.: A place of industry and history

JOURNEYS INTO NEW JERSEY

Say the name Roebling to most folks, and images of the Brooklyn Bridge come to mind.

John Augustus Roebling (1806-1869) is famous for his wire rope suspension bridge designs, in particular, the design of the aforementioned Brooklyn Bridge. John A. Roebling & Sons built and provided the steel for numerous other bridges including the Golden Gate Bridge and one over the Niagara River just north of the Falls.

Less known is that John Roebling & Sons, the company responsible for these and other architectural wonders, was based in New Jersey. In fact, so great was the connection to New Jersey that the Roebling Company built their own company town in the state.

That place still stands today - the Village of Roebling, located in Burlington County on the Delaware River between Trenton and Burlington.
