The Telephone Historical Centre is a visitor focused centre for the sharing, preservation, and interpretation of artifacts and materials that demonstrate the evolution of telecommunications for the education and enjoyment of historians and present and future generations.


The museum has served as a steward of the telecommunications history for 30 years, with the support of the local community. The museum has built a large and diverse collection of artifacts and archives which contains in excess of 1500 objects dating back to 1878, as well as an extensive archive.


We strive to maintain an environment where our visitors can learn about our telecommunications history in an interesting, meaningful and entertaining manner by experiencing our hands-on displays such as our telephone switchboard and rotary dial payphone, and also by watching our historical film narrated by Xeldon the telephone repair robot, connecting the old to the new in a fun and unique way.


The CASC office is situated in Robinson Huron Treaty territory and the land on which we learn and live is the traditional territory of the Atikameksheng Anishnawbek.
