A Very Special Book Launch Event @ Roebling Museum
“ROEBLING: Company Town ~ Steel, Immigrants, Moonshine and Crap Tables, 1905 – 1947” written by Louis “Lou” Borbi
Steel—the backbone of a growing industrial nation.
Roebling—well-known for building the iconic Brooklyn Bridge, was ready to expand into steel-making.
Land—the right piece of property was located alongside the Delaware River.
Workforce— in an era when immigrants were welcomed for the labor they could provide.
Louis Borbi, a life-long resident of Roebling with a keen interest and passion for its history, meticulously compiled a wealth of information over the past fifty years. Through vivid descriptions and dialogue influenced by these reference materials, Borbi enables readers to step into the past and learn about everyday life in the now historic village of Roebling, NJ.
Event will include:
~ Book Launch and Signing with the Author

~ Original Artwork Showcase
~ Purchase the Book Directly from the Author – Lou Borbi
