Making connections with the past is what the Montrose Historical and Telephone Pioneer Museum is all about. The telephone museum is the first of its kind in Michigan and is coupled with the Montrose Area Historical Association's Museum. The two share a building built in the fifties to house the Public Service Telephone Company of Montrose.
The telephone exhibits include many operating displays of authentic equipment. Go back to the days when you rang central and central rang you. Enjoy the hands-on experience of listening in on a party line or using wire telephone lines.
See a large collection of antique wall telephones and early style, candlestick desk phones.
Displays created within a 1930 time-frame by the Montrose Area Historical Association give dimension and context to the telephone exhibits.
Still-life exhibits in the local museum recreate a time-gone-by atmosphere and changing displays spotlight unique aspects of area history.
Displays of farming implements and household items give testimony to what daily life was like several generations ago.
