||Telephone Exhibit. This
collection includes tools and materials used in the trade as well as
some older telephones. Of particular interest is a cable spinner
developed and used by a local resident to install and maintain lead
cables during the 1930's and 1940's. In 1999, with a grant received from
the Independent Telephone Historic Foundation, the exhibit was expanded
to preserve the step x step switching equipment from the Weldon,
Illinois office. Visitors can make a telephone call from one end of the
exhibit to the other and view the progress of the call being made.
