Once located in Washington, D.C., ITPA's National Office and Museum relocated in 2001 to the small, beautiful city of Hinesville in Liberty County, Georgia. Nestled beneath the magestic oaks draped elegantly with spanish moss,  the National Office occupies the former family home of Trudie and Glenn E. Bryant. Mr. Bryant was a pioneer for Hinesville, Liberty County and the telephone industry alike. Byrant served as a GA State Senator and was the founder of Coastal Communications. He bought the Hinesville Telephone Company in 1946.

The ITPA museum consists a vast collection of telephones and telephone equipment from throughout history. Children and adults alike may find it fascinating to see how the telephone evoloved from the solid wood, wall mounted, hand cranked, operator directed, simplistic designs of the past to today's pocket sized, touch-screen, celluar phones.
