‪The museum was closed. Still, it took just a few minutes, off the main road to visit - allowing us to stretch our legs — to see this. It showed an America where homes and business were once intertwined, supported each other, shared their communities, thought BIG And did BIG things - bridged the Golden Gate and East River that for centuries couldn’t be done. Ken Burns’ documentary captures what this small community did and others like it to build our country.‬

‪My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed the Roebling Museum and the town of Roebling. I had a basic knowledge of the family’s connection to the Brooklyn Bridge, but I learned so much more at the museum. George O. was our tour guide and he was fantastic. He was extremely knowledgeable, organized, friendly and professional. The museum film gave a good overview of the Roebling family history, and George took it from there. The museum has several hundred artifacts of interest and outside are large pieces of equipment that were used in the manufacturing process. After visiting the museum, we drove around town (using the map George provided) to view some of the original buildings as well as the brick houses built by the Roeblings for their employees. It was nice to find and explore this NJ gem. Do yourself a favor and check it out!

‪Standing in the town of Roebling one can almost imagine themselves back in time during the heyday of the Roebling company. The tour guides description helps to transport you back to those days. Pictures of the process used to created the cables and what it meant to bridge construction in the US is amazing. The whole concept of a company town, cradle to grave, is a glimpse into bygone days and what it meant to be a part of it. Roebling was a visionary and an entrepreneur who helped create the infrastructure we have today. The bridges he designed and helped create are still going strong and in use daily.‬

‪Our group of 22 car enthusiasts had a fantastic time! Thanks so much to Caren and John for making our visit informative and very enjoyable. We did a walking tour of the company town and learned about how the Roeblings ran their business and treated their workers. The museum has much more to see than we anticipated, so we didn't have enough time to look at everything.. It whetted our appetite and many of us will be back. A great place to visit.‬

‪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 I interesting, is the tiny village of rowhouses that once was home to non union immigrant workers who tolerated long hours, plus air and noise pollution 24 hours a day. Workers had to pay rent to Roebling. The houses are now privately owned. The guide showed a short film claiming ethnically segregated workers were grateful for the work. He downplayed the EPA findings. The small museum shows samples of wire cables and posters of Roebling family members who became very rich from exploited workers.‬

We are grateful for your visit to the Roebling Museum, and for your review. We do, however, take exception to some of the characterizations made within your review. This is not simply a "waste area." It is a reclaimed, former industrial site, which has been carefully and painstakingly remediated and restored to usefulness within the community and within this region. This is something Roebling Museum proudly shares and represents, because an important area of land that could have been lost to this community and to the world forever, has found a renewed purpose, connected to its history and to the heritage of the people who lived and worked here. The "tiny building" referred to in your review is a 7,000 square foot facility, that includes galleries, a media room, storage space, office space, and a large and growing archive. The tiny row houses referred to range in size, but were certainly not considered to be either small or squalid by those who lived and worked here during the company's heyday, nor by those who now own the homes. Most of the 760+ homes built by the company remain standing as originally built, since all homes and buildings in town were built of long-lasting, locally-made brick. There are 15 different styles of homes, all built for and by the workers and their families, including sub-basements, summer kitchens, back yards for gardening and playing, and many other features most industrial-age worker villages or companies would never have imagined to include. The film to which you referred was made by several generations of former Roebling Company workers and their descendants. While Roebling family descendants have been involved with the restoration of this historic site for many years, it was, in fact the descendants of the mostly immigrant workforce that fought to save, restore and re-purpose this site as a Museum...to tell the stories - good, bad and otherwise - of their families lives here in Roebling. We understand your different point of view, and feel it is certainly a valid one. However, we also believe it is the right of the people who lived and worked here to share the pride they feel in this place and in its contributions - their contributions - to history and to modern society. That the various, mostly Eastern European, nationalities lived on certain streets for much of the history of the company, the characterization you make is that this was done to purposely keep the ethnic group apart. This is not so. And if you visit with us again, we would be happy to provide archival and oral history documentation to help provide a better understanding of why this took place. Finally, there is no way to downplay the EPA's findings or reports about this site. The vast number of studies, reports and surveys done on this site before, during and after remediation are publicly available. Our volunteers and staff share information about this on a regular and frequent basis, and from early 2017 to mid 2018, Roebling Museum's original exhibit, "The Heritage Keepers," provided great detail about the status of this site as a US Superfund site, about the contaminants found and remediated from this site, and about the road/journey that made it possible to safely establish a formal, freestanding nonprofit museum here, with formal and professionally developed and cared-for exhibits and artifacts, not just posters on a wall. And while many American industrial age business owners - including the Roeblings - did gain wealth from their businesses, the Roeblings were not generally known for having "exploited" their workers just to become rich. Again, we invite to to come back and visit us again, to explore both archival and oral history documentation to support this. There is a something so valuable in having you express your opinions as you did, so that we can address them in such a forum as this. Thanks again for sharing your thoughts.

‪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” and “The Golden Gate Bridge”.

A thespian troop of high school students from Flushing, NY wrote an original play about Emily Warren Roebling’s role in engineering and managing the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge. This play, written and performed in a Hamilton-esque style, is very creative and inspirational. During our visit to the Roebling Museum they performed portions of their play. They were the only New York thespian troop chosen to perform at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland next month.

‪Had no idea this place existed until I reaad a story about it published by the BBC. Wonderful piece of American history. While the company did many things, bridges made them famous. The museum is very well done and is housed in the former factory gate house. The movie they show you gives you a lot of history of the factory and town. There are a lot of activities for kids,. Bridge building and ever a summer day camp. For the adults book signing and talks. Well worth the admission price.‬

‪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 one of the exbibits discuss the historic preservation aspects of the Superfund Act. The museum is in the former mill gatehouse/admin building. There are also outdoor artifacts including railroad equipment, a huge forklift and various steel mill appurtenances. Well worth a trip. Plenty of parking; also, an easy walk from the River Line Light Rail’s Roebling Station.
NB: there are very few restaurants in Roebling, but it is a short drive to Bordentown which has a nice main street with restaurants and shops‬

‪Roebling was the factory town that produced the cables that hold up suspension bridges such as the Brooklyn, George Washington and Golden Gate.
The factory main gate where employees began their work day is one of the only factory buildings still standing. This building now houses the museum. After a comprehensive film about the Roebling family and their products, we toured the museum with a knowledgeable docent--each facet of Roebling family, product and employees was explored. A sample of the superior type of wire cable is available for inspection. Most of the employees would make the town of Roebling their home, work at the factory, enjoy life and never leave. The Company would build houses, schools, churches and whatever was necessary to keep their employees content
To feel the essence of the village, take the self-guided walking tour to see the general store, boarding houses, auditorium, and first schoolhouse. Talk to the inhabitants, the factory no longer exists but the town lives on. The Roebling Museum sponsors events throughout the year such as October Fest and the Village Christmas walking tour.‬

‪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 impressed me the most was how the heritage of a "company town" was preserved by generations of original owners and workers of the plants. For me it was stepping back in time to a much more gentle and loving time.‬
