Re: Pennsylvania 6-5000 Is Still In Use!

PA Mom-mom, thank  you for posting this little tidbit, it's quite cool to think one could still dial that number and have it be the same place it was nearly a century ago!

 

And I remember my family's first phone number, too, it was a 4-home party line to start, but eventually we got total ownership of WAbash 8-3734.    I miss dialing that number to talk to my Mom every day!

Thanks @CamilleP . You are so right. I hope the hotel can keep this phone number at least until we no longer have phone numbers! Our party line was especially problematic during strawberry season, when my mom took orders for fresh picked strawberries.

Our Philadelphia number started with Livingston 8.
