Mid-Missouri Museum of Independent Telephone Pioneers

This museum showcases a unique collection of telephone equipment and memorabilia.

It is housed in a building that was originally the Bank of Blackwater. The bank did not survive the Depression and the building was later used as a church, grocery store, and the offices of Mid-Missouri Telephone Company. When the phone company first moved in, they still had operators sitting at their switchboards handling calls.

The collection of phones, switchboards and other items featured in the museum were donated by the owner of the phone company and by a retired executive of GTE.
