How do you bridge design aesthetics of two different buildings? The visitor center is brand new and the Fulton home was built in the 1870s. The story is about the Fulton family’s drive to achieve the American Dream in the time of Western expansion. The Victorian feel of the exhibits complements the home with a marriage of architectural style and the infusion of warm colors and period details, helping tie the new building with the original home. The exhibits are fun and engage a broad audience. A gear interactive introduces visitors to George Fulton’s many talents, such as inventor and bridge builder. A scale model of the Roebling Bridge encourages you to hone your bridge-building skills. Another interactive entices you to take your own period picture. These exhibits will inspire your own ingenuity and you will take home a memory.
