In 1832, two brothers from Germany, Friedrich Carl Roebling, and John A. Roebling established a small farming community called “Germania” where present-day Saxonburg Borough is now located. The two men migrated from Prussia, Germany, in 1831 with a group of people fleeing the political unrest and oppression Germans in those days suffered. On October 28, 1831, Roebling brothers purchased 1,582 acres from a frontier woman named Sarah Collins. Friedrich Roebling had been an engineer in Germany but became a farmer during his first few years living in America. Nevertheless, Friedrich found his way back into being an engineer, which led him to invent a new method of producing wire cable. He used his invention in many projects, one being an aqueduct. Friedrich’s wire cable eventually led him to design the suspension bridge, some of which include on in Philadelphia, two in Pittsburgh, and the Brooklyn Bridge in New York. Another world-changing invention comes out of Saxonburg as well: In 1920, KDKA Radio began broadcasting the world’s first commercial radio broadcast. It later moved to Clinton Township.
