Snarfie R. Dog, Hattie the Witch, Teaser the Mouse, the Treehouse and the Castle… If you loved Larry Smith's puppets, you need to see the collection on display at the National Voice of America Museum of Broadcasting in West Chester Township.

Created in 1944, the Voice of America’s Bethany Relay Station in West Chester served as the voice of freedom around the world for 50 years. Cincinnati broadcasting pioneer Powel Crosley, Jr. called the VOA building’s main concourse “The Temple of Radio.” Decommissioned in 1995, the facility is now home to the National Voice of America Museum of Broadcasting.
