The area was once a home to the site where American radio company RCA operated a very large transmitting and transmitter research facility known as Radio Central. The radio company began to transmit transatlantic radio messages from Radio Central after its opening on November 5, 1921. RCA Radio Central at Rocky Point was considered the world’s largest and most powerful wireless transmitting station, and after World War I, Radio Central was established at the suggestion of Navy officials to acquire the American Marconi Wireless Telegraph Company. This was encouraged by the government because of the importance of an American-owned and operated overseas communications system. In 1970s, the 5200 acre Rocky Point site was demolished and now consists of many concrete ruins and downed telephone poles and radio towers.
