This move was made from Mascoutah, Illinois when Continental Tele. purchased the phone company homed here in Hector. Vern designed the telephone plant to cut in a new central office in Mound, MN. It was a 75 mile drive to the Twin City suburb on Lake Minnetonka. All drawings were created in the office across the street from this house. See city photo below.
