Telephone Exchange Building
SNET was formed in 1882, and counts among its precursors the first telephone company in the world, the New Haven Telephone Company, established in 1878, and the New Milford Telephone Company founded in 1880. These early dates are notable given that patents were filed in 1876 by Alexander Graham Bell’s for the telephone, and by Tivador Puskás for the switchboard exchange that same year. By the 1910s the demand for telephone service increased and this triggered SNET to construct a number of new telephone exchange buildings in many Connecticut towns.
