Located in the New England Wireless and Steam Museum in East Greenwich, Rhode Island, the Massie System Wireless Station is originally built in Point Judith, RI. It is the oldest surviving functioning wireless station in the whole world.
The Massie System Wireless Station was once a means of communication for steamboats that travel from New England to New York City. The unit that can be found in the museum was built by Walter Wentworth Massie in 1907, and much of it is unaltered and can still work properly, helping it secure a spot in the National Register of Historic Places.
The Massie System Wireless Station was relocated from its original building in Point Judith in 1983 to avoid losing it through the demolition project that sealed the fate of the building.
