  • While Ernestine may never have worked the switchboard in this particular phone operator's building, Mrs. Ada Rowland did, and for 25 years at that. From 1918 until her retirement in 1943. Mrs. Rowland connected callers to each other at all hours of the day and night, even going so far as to hand carry emergency messages to families at two in the morning when no one answered the phone because they were asleep. At first she didn't live in the operator's building, but an apartment was soon added and this became her home. This small rural exchange got its start in 1916 when a few local Rockvale residents formed "The Rockvale Home Mutual Telephone Association." They sold shares in the new venture for $30 each, and then installed the phone system themselves. They cut down trees and made poles, set the poles, strung the wire, built the small operator's house you see here, bought a Western Electric switchboard, and then hired an operator and a service man. Most customers were on party lines. It was not unusual to have eight families sharing one line. Eaves dropping was commonplace and expected, so careful speech and code words were the order of the day. In 1949 the Telephone Amendment was added to the Rural Electrification Act by the federal government, making funds and management assistance available to rural telephone systems. By that time the Rockvale association was struggling to handle its growing network of customers, so about 1954 they voted to let South Central Bell have the franchise. They may have lost local control of their exchange, and rates did go up, but Ma Bell gave everyone their own private line, a welcome change for most. The old phone building is still in pretty good shape, but it is abandoned now, and has been for a few years. The old operator's switchboard that Mrs. Rowland used was found in a barn in the 1970's and was restored to full working order. It was donated to Cannonsburgh Pioneer Village in Murfreesboro and is on display in the old phone operator's building located there. The link below will take you to a great article about the Rockvale phone association, complete with pictures of Mrs. Rowland at the switchboard and this building back in its early days. eaglevilletn.us/index.php/a-step-back-in-time/26-early-te...
