Explore radio from Marconi’s earliest wireless telegraph to the primitive
crystal sets of the 1920s, from Depression-era cathedrals and post-War
plastic portables to the development of radio with pictures (a.k.a.
television). The museum is located in the 1906 Harmel House, an old
storekeeper’s residence in the village of Mitchellville, a section of
modern south Bowie. In conjunction with the City of Bowie, the Radio
History Society presents the history of broadcasting, a medium which so
dramatically shaped our lives from the 1920s to today.
