HILLSBORO, TEXAS

SOUTHWESTERN BELL PHONE DIRECTORY-1940

 

The listing below is from the April 1940 Southwestern Bell Telephone Directory for Hillsboro, Texas. It is in the genealogy section of Hillsboro City Library and in fragile condition. We believe this directory, along with others,  was donated to us by Jane Pruitt. We thank her very much for this look back into history.

We transcribed it to preserve the records; and thought it would be helpful to see where many of our ancestors lived and which businesses were in the town at this time also.

The pages we know today as the “yellow pages” were listed as “Classified” in 1940. I did not type “classified pages”, as most of the business numbers are included with residential numbers.

 

The rural numbers have  F included in them and we took that to mean the people were living and working on farms. We do not know what the J and W in some numbers mean unless it was in a rooming house or the W could mean it was the wife’s number.  If anyone knows what the J or W stand for, please contact us.
