We are biased - but this little place is great. Was a telephone exchange and AT&T donated the building to the effort. Very nice telephone timeline and big display area. Multi floor exhibits really cover the history of the telephone. And the people are very...More

Fascinating little museum that is staffed by volunteers that give it a very unique place in history. Great displays, and photos of how the telephone evolved, and what the evolution meant to us. There is one display that I loved, it contained "specialized" phones, Elvis,...More
