Along with many other collections at the Pioneer Village is this display of early phone equipment for central offices, homes and businesses.
The description states:
TELEPHONES & SWITCHBOARDS
First Bell to Latest Automatic
These are just a few of the 20,000 items, in 20 buildings, on 2 city blocks, showing man’s progress since 1830. 132 Miles West of Lincoln, Nebr., on U.S. 6.
— Considering how phone use has changed, with so many abandoning land-line phones for cellular, there may not be much more to add to this exhibit representing home phones.
