Join the Sippican Lands Trust for a tour of their popular Radio Tower parcel in Marion’s Aucoot Woods. Local historian Dick Evans will kick off the walk with a short talk about the history of the Radio Tower property.

The Radio Tower property features old radio tower foundations for 400-foot antennas used by the Marconi Wireless Telegraph Company of America to receive transatlantic wireless signals at the start of World War I. The walk will explore the site of what was once one of the largest telegraph stations in the world in the early 20th century.

The trail for the Radio Tower property is accessible from the Benson Brook Road, past the Marion Transfer Station, and parking is available in that area. Participants should gather near the SLT kiosk at the head of the trail. Please carpool if possible as parking is limited.

The walk is free and no registration is required. Please bring water and dress appropriately for the day’s weather as only the worst weather will cancel an SLT walk. If a walk is canceled, then information will be posted to SLT’s website and Facebook page.

Cost: Free
