Oklahoma Museum of Telephone History (In Transition)

Field review by the editors.

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Bob McCoy was a telephone engineer for 34 years, and he believed that the story of phone service in Oklahoma needed to be told. So in 1997 he opened the Oklahoma Museum of Telephone History. He discovered that other folks in Oklahoma shared his interest and his habit of saving old phone equipment. Today the museum displays over 1,000 donated items, including a 1905 switchboard and a 1910 wind-up wall phone, with special exhibits on the life of a telephone lineman and the invention of the telephone cable wrapper, which happened right in Oklahoma City.
