Born as a cultural remediation project to lessen the impact of polluted historic industrial structures on this Superfund site, the Main Gate Museum serves as home for the Roebling New Jersey Historical Society. The linked structures now house the Society’s headquarters and a museum displaying artifacts from the former Roebling steel mill. These include industrial process equipment, items produced by the mill for 70+ years and records of the mill, the factory town, the Roebling Company, and the Roebling family.

Working with the EPA through the US Army Corps of Engineers, the Town of Florence, and the Roebling Historical Society, the firm and its consultants developed a “Campus Plan” including a program, adaptive reuse concepts and expansion strategies. Schematic design of the gatehouse structure and adjacent ambulance garage followed along with a design package for the exterior preservation and the adaptive reuse of the interior.
