Inscription. The telephone had made its way into many rural homes by the early 1900s. All calls had to be connected by an operator at a switchboard similar to the one at the Cannonsburgh Telephone Exchange Company. this switchboard originally came from the Rockvale Home Mutual Telephone in Southern Rutherford County. Because the operator had to be available at all hours, the switchboard building was also a home.
