Abstract:

THE ROEBLING LEGACY portrays the story of the Roeblings, from the great immigrant engineer John A. Roebling and his quest to design the Brooklyn Bridge, to his son Washington A. Roebling, who built the bridge with help from his wife Emily Warren Roebling. The Brooklyn Bridge, as Mayor Michael Bloomberg said in 2008, is "the icon of New York City and an enduring symbol of America's greatness." The story spans four generations of the Roeblings through their bridge building and the family business, the John A. Roebling's Sons Company of Trenton, N.J., that developed and produced innovative wire rope and wire products for many emerging technologies over a 125 year period. The Roeblings built the great cables of many landmark suspension bridges, including the George Washington and Golden Gate Bridges, and they built the town of Roebling, N.J., which David McCullough has called "one of the best planned industrial towns ever built in America, a model in every respect." Today the town is thriving with a new Roebling Museum and Roebling factory buildings in Trenton have been adapted for a variety of new uses.
