Visitor Tips and News About Telephone Museum seen in Yes Man
The "Frank H. Woods Telephone Pioneer Museum" tells telephony's tale beginning with the early days of Bell's experiments, and the Lincoln Telephone & Telegraph Company ... from the LT&T point of view. LT&T founder (Frank Woods) was fiercely independent, and in direct competition with the Bell System. Lincoln was one of the first cities in the country to have dial service for their phones.
They're only open for a few hours on Sundays, so plan accordingly! Give yourself an hour or so to go through it and absorb all the information throughout the exhibit. It's very interesting and informative and sure to bring back memories and spark conversation (Hey! I remember that from Grandma's house!).[Jack Cornelison, ChFC, CLU, FLMI, ACS, AIAA, 03/28/2009]
