Telephone: A strangely named Texas town without… telephones

Welcome to Texas

Telephone is the strangely named little Texas town where, oddly enough,  you can no longer get a landline telephone. The little town 90 miles northeast of Dallas on the Red River was named just 10 years after the invention of the telephone and was one of the first towns in the country to have one.
