Visit the New Hampshire Telephone Museum

The New Hampshire Telephone Museum houses a tangible history of telecommunications which can be viewed via guided or self-guided tours.

Knowledgeable staff provide engaging commentary highlighting important moments in telephone history, such as the race to the patent office, the undertaker who invented the dial system, and so much more. 

The museum features the collection of the Violette & Bartlett families who collectively worked in the telephone industry for over 85 years.  Also featured is the collection of Garry Mitchell, another longtime telephone worker from Woodbury Connecticut, as well as gifts received from the public.
