Are you old enough to remember what a party line was? A switchboard? Do you have an interest in knowing how telephone service got started on South Whidbey?
Next time you are in downtown Langley, stop in and visit Whidbey Telecom’s new BiG GiG Center at 117 Anthes Avenue, just down the hill from the South Whidbey Historical Museum. They have a conference room filled with a timeline history of phone service on South Whidbey which dates back to 1893, plus several early telephones.
The Big Gig Center is open weekdays, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
