Wilson Communications was founded in the early 1900's as Wilson Telephone Company. In 1943 Paul and Helen Grauer purchased one-third of the company and moved to Wilson, KS. Over the next few years, Paul and Helen purchased the remainder of the company from Fred Cross. Over the next several years exchanges were added to the company until it finally provided local telephone service to the communities of Wilson, Lucas, Sylvan Grove, Hunter, Denmark, Tipton, and Brookville.
Under the leadership of Paul Grauer, Wilson Telephone Company became a family owned and operated business with an additional staff of 10 employees. Wilson Communications has always been focused on providing the best service possible to the customers it serves and maintains a commitment to provide the most up-to-date services available. The company, its owners and all of its employees continue to remain committed to those tasks today.
Over the years every member of the Grauer family has worked at the company in some capacity. Following Paul and Helen's deaths, the family has retained and continued to operate the company. Currently, Robert and Eva Grauer as well as their son Scott Grauer are the owners of the company. Currently Local Telephone Service, Broadband, and Long Distance are available to all Wilson Communications' customers. Cable Television is offered in five of our seven exchanges. Wilson Communications remains committed to providing the best service possible while maintaining a local presence.
