115 Years Ago - Aug. 5, 1904      Additional switchboard — The White Mountain Telephone Company received, Wednesday, a three-position switchboard to be put in their new office in Millar’s block. This switchboard was necessary to relieve the congestion on the present board. The telephone patronage has had a steady and remarkable growth in this town the past year, making it necessary for the company to secure larger office quarters and the switchboard. They have secured two large offices in Millar’s block, back of Powers & Archibald’s office.
