Camp Evans and Info Age World War II Museum

2201 Marconi Road, Wall, NJ 07719

(732) 280-3000


The Camp Evans site was originally selected in 1912 by Guglielmo Marconi, an Italian immigrant, as the east coast base of trans-Atlantic wireless communication. The Federal government seized the property a few years later when it realized its strategic importance for WWI communications. The property ultimately became the military Camp Evans, where many innovations evolved, including early radar systems, cold war technology and nuclear weapons development. Research at the site was cutting-edge and drew a diverse group of scientists and engineers, including African Americans and women, to work on the emerging technologies.

  • View exhibits that honor the communication pioneers of wireless, WWI, WWII, space exploration and the cold war
