The story goes, that year, in 1912, Pete Christenson won the telephone company in a game of Pinochle. It’s hard to imagine Rainier Connect telling a potential customer today, “We don’t have lines out where you live.

There was a disagreement on the cost, and I’m not sure it was ever resolved, as I remember a crank-style phone in our family farm well into the 60s.
Pete sold the business to his son Henry in 1919, and then it went to Peter’s son Dan in 1929, and next to grandson Arne Haynes in 1954.


The operator would throw a switch, ask who that person wanted to speak to, and then manually make the connection.
