Locust Grove Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Walk in the footsteps of the man who helped make the telegraph an international communications system. If you had to memorize Morse code as a Boy or Girl Scout or as part of your military training, you will enjoy this visit to the estate of the code’s creator.

Not only did Samuel Morse develop the code that became the universal standard for electromagnetic messaging in the first half of the nineteenth century, but he also invented the single- wire telegraph, the first system to transmit a message electronically."
