Telephone operator's building, Lincoln, ca. 1940

Contributed by Lincoln Historical Society


The telephone operator's building was on lower Main St. where Rite Aid now is located. It is the big white house on the left and the office was downstairs. The house on the right belonged to Dr. Frank Gordon, owner of the Gordon Fox Farms. A red light on the outside of the building alerted police to call the telephone office and the operator let the police know someone needed help or there was some other situation they needed to deal with.
