About The Telecommunications History Group
The Telecommunications History Group (THG) was formed by a small group of retired and active phone company employees who were shocked and disappointed to learn that many historical items were being discarded and destroyed as buildings were relocated or put out of commission or as people and departments deemed something no longer necessary.
Recognizing the importance of preserving these items for future generations in order to tell the story of telecom, a 501 c (3) non-profit organization began in 1990, and THG was born! Today the organization includes two museums located in Denver and Seattle, and an outstanding archive, which includes both physical items located in Denver as well as digital resources.
THG operates through donations from individuals and companies who share the goal of maintaining the important heritage of telecommunications. Our small but mighty staff is supported by extraordinary volunteers and an active Board of Directors.
Whether you realize it or not, the telecommunications industry has touched and influenced your life. We can’t wait to share our stories, our collections, and our past with you!
