Post 6. Monnier House

This house, inhabited by the Monnier family housed the Anniviers telephone centre. Crésence Monnier, still in school at the time, was the first telegraph operator of Vissoie and later she was responsible for the manual telephone centre. In 1942, she passed along this function to her daughter-in-law.

The telephone system was installed in the house in 1907 and worked there until 1956, when an automatic system was introduced in Anniviers. Until 1921, the ground floor of the building housed the post office.
