Discover one of the country's finest exhibits of antique telephones, switchboards, switching equipment and tools. The museum, consisting of over 1000 original pieces, features the collection of Alderic O. "Dick" Violette, who had over 50 years in the telephone industry. Guided tours are available - and encouraged - and are provided by people who have experience in the telephone industry. Listen to stories about operators, party lines and the undertaker who invented the first automatic dialing system.
The museum is ADA compliant and has free parking onsite. While you are here you can also visit the Warner Firefighters Museum which is housed in the same building.
