The Roebling Legacy

June 5, 2018 at 7:30 PM | Kingston, NJ | Kingston Firehouse (meeting hall)
Spanning 200 years, the story of the Roebling dynasty is a true account of innovation and struggle during a time of industrial revolution and technological advancement in America’s history. Through landmark achievements like the Brooklyn Bridge – the “universal symbol of New York” – and the great cables on the George Washington and Golden Gate Bridges, the Roeblings and thousands of their employees helped shape modern life, built one of America’s best company towns – “a model in every respect.” In this session, participants will discover how this high profile New Jersey family influenced life then and life today.
