The Roebling Steel Plant has long been the center of this tiny village – the community was built especially for mill workers in 1904. John A. Roebling was a civil engineer famous for designing the Brooklyn Bridge and several other suspension bridges, many dating back to the 1840s. His company produced the wire rope for several other bridges, including the Golden Gate Bridge. Roebling is also credited for inventing the Slinky. Roebling died in 1869, after an accident at the Brooklyn Bridge construction site.
