Marconi Wireless Interpretation CentreFogo, Fogo Island
The Marconi Wireless Interpretation Centre officially opened in 2007, and is a monument to the important role that wireless communication played in Newfoundland and Labrador's history. The original Marconi station was built in 1911, and for many years was the only station between Cape Race and Belle Isle. Through interpretative panels, the site tells the story of the ebb and flow of communities and culture and how wireless technology kept those in the fishery safe, prosperous and in touch.
