Few today realize that Marion was once home to the world's largest and most powerful wireless telegraph station.  Built in 1914 by the pioneering Marconi Wireless Telegraph Company, the Marion installation boasted fourteen towers, each standing more than 400 feet tall.  The station was designed to handle all trans-Atlantic radio traffic, communicating directly with another high-powered wireless plant in Norway.  So impressive was the station at the time of its installation, it was referred to as "one of the wonders of the twentieth century.”
