Nefcom Telephone Company

Phone service to Baker County was established just before the onset of WWI in the early 1900s by George M. Clayton. It was then known as The Macclenny Telephone Company and ushered in an era of technology never imagined by members of small, rural Baker County.

 In the mid 1970s owner Gladys Walker guided the company in numerous improvements and upgrades including the installation of new digital central office facilities which ultimately embraced internet, long distance, business system sales, installation and maintenance.

This museum houses examples of the evolution in telephone equipment and service. Among the items on display is the Stromberg-Carlson Switchboard which was used to connect local calls during the mid 1960s - 1970s; the Western Electric "Hang Up" hand set, circa 1930s and many more.
