Geocache Description:

Medium-small camouflaged PB jar.

Cache named for the telephone exchange name in this vicinity.

When telephone numbers began with just their three-number prefixes, the seven-digits were often written as two-letter abbreviations followed by five numbers (2L-5N).

Into the early 1970s, it was not unusual to hear someone say a phone number starting with the neighborhood exchange name (“GReenwood 3-xxxx“).

• There are hundreds of local exchange names around the U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia and possibly other countries. (source: The Telephone EXchange Name Project)

• Exchange names can still be used, but… They might cause more bewilderment than a confrontation with a rotary dial phone.

• If you - or someone you know - is old enough, you probably remember, or could find out, your own telephone exchange name. Along with other area history, exchange names lend a fun sense of connection to where you grew up – or where you live now.
