Enter Virtual Experience for ""Communication Hub

General Audience

The communication hub of the home at the turn of the century is located behind the main staircase since this is where the telephone jack is located. The phone jack was built into the wall for phones to plug into. From here the phone was connected to outside lines on telephone poles. Other telephones were eventually added to the primary bedroom and the second floor front hall. This space also contains a hidden closet under the staircase as well as a guest bathroom.
