We had a party line until sometime in the late '80s. We had a 4-party line for several years and a 2-party line for the later years. The state Public Service Board then mandated that party lines had to go and that was the first time we had a private line. Modems were becoming popular and you couldn't use a modem with a party line.

I wouldn't bet my life on it, but I remember our number when I was five--Capitol 2284. When we got dial service, it became Capitol 7-2284. We moved when I was 8 and were back to operator calls: Maywood 3885. When we got dial service it became Fillmore 4-3885. I remember that we had an assembly at school with a representative from the phone company who explained how to use a dial phone.
