The Station was a Center of the Western Union Cable System.

On the Shore near the teleGraph Station, you can see some of the Cables in the water.

This Town remained a Global Communications Hub for over a Century.
Exhibits recreate an 1870s Cable Office and capture how the Cable Station changed over its Years.
