1st 2-way telephone conversation-9.10.1876
Today in history - October 9, 1876


On October 9, 1876 the first two-way long distance telephone conversation was carried on for three hours. From Cambridgeport Thomas G. Watson spoke over a telegraph wire to Alexander Graham Bell at the office of the Walworth Mfg. Co. 69 Kirby Street, Boston, Mass. 

Within six months of the first two-way call, Bell would conduct a telephone conversation between Boston and New York City. Bell's patents and the success of the Bell Telephone Company, which he established in 1877, made the young inventor a very rich man. But Bell had little interest in the business end of telecommunications.
