Rucker's Communication Museum is located inside Rucker's Antique Emporium and Auction House, at 20 E. Church Street. Explore the history of telecommunication and get an inside look at how it all works. The museum is full of telephones and information on how the telephone system has progressed through time. The museum is a wonderful way to show children and today's generation how things used to be before today's modern advances. Have you ever seen a real switch board? You can when you visit.
