As you walk along the bridge's pedestrian walkway, your guide shares the dramatic story of the Roebling family, who sacrificed life and health to create what was then the longest suspension bridge in the world. Learn about the arduous work necessary to build the bridge and the Italian, Irish, and German immigrants who labored heroically to complete the historic endeavor.
