The Massie Wireless Station was built in Point Judith, Rhode Island in 1907 and is the oldest surviving working wireless station in the world. It is now part of the New England Wireless and Steam Museum.

The Massie Wireless Station provided communications to steamboats that traveled between New York City and New England cities. In 1983 the wireless station was moved to the New England Wireless and Steam Museum at 1300 Frenchtown Road in East Greenwich, Rhode Island to avoid demolition.[2] The wireless station was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2001.[1]
