1935 New Vienna Telephone Directory

The 1935 Clinton Telephone Directory lists the New Vienna Exchange as well as Wilmington, Sabina, Blanchester, Martinsville, Clarksville and Port William.  New Vienna numbers take up two pages and indicate businesses, offices, and RFD numbers.  A separate page lists new subscribers.  The previous phone book is dated 1932 and the one following is 1940.

Two ads are included in the New Vienna pages – The Merlin Davis funeral home later became Smith Funeral Home.  Merlin (1892-1948) was the husband of Mabel Davis who for years was the New Vienna correspondent to the Wilmington News-Journal, reporting all the New Vienna news fit to print, plus more.  The second ad for D.R. Smith Service Station was on the location that later became the Shell Station.
