In a September 1883 edition of the St. Charles Herald, an article read, “On Tuesday last, while in the city, Manager Huck, of the Telephone Co., informed us that he would, if possible, have a switch-board located in Hahnville, next week, at the Herald Office, in order to enable our merchants and the community to speak with friends above or below us. The charge will be for five minutes or less between here and New Orleans, twenty-five cents.” This notice appeared frequently in the St. Charles Herald during the late 1800s.
