In 1895 James A. Tower was only 16 years old when, using barbed wire fencing, he strung the first telephone line for what was to become The Calaveras Telephone Company. As demands for the telephone service increased, the young Mr. Tower found it necessary to establish a central office in the small community of Felix near the town of Copperopolis. Then in 1899, Mr. Tower, now 20 years old, negotiated an agreement with Sunset Telephone Company that would connect his subscribers by telephone with the rest of the world.
James A. Tower died in 1936 at the young age of 56, leaving his wife Laura and their young son Howard, who was 13 years old at the time, responsible for the operation of the company. In 1950, Mr. Howard Tower, then 27 years old, installed the first automatic switching equipment in the county. This meant that Laura no longer had to operate a manual switchboard. By 1962, all unsightly telephone lines had been buried underground and The Calaveras Telephone Company was operating out of their new modernized buildings in Copperopolis and Jenny Lind.
Today we are proud to say Calaveras Telephone Company is still family owned and operated.

In 1950, we started out as a family operation with Erich’s father and mother, August and Freida Sender, in a century-old adobe building. The upstairs was home to the Sender family, and the first floor included groceries, a meat market, a bar, and a small eating place called Opa’s Smokehouse. On Christmas morning in 1968, the old store was destroyed by fire. But in June 1969, Sender’s Market, Inc. was opened. Since that time, there have been many changes, including remodeling, expansion, and the addition of many employees. That’s also when we added the truss plant and purchased Sender’s Market Ace Hardware in Valley Springs. Today, we’re still family owned and still working hard to stock everything from pantry essentials to power tools. Whether you’ve got questions about the perfect cut of meat or the right kind of paint, our helpful, knowledgeable staff has you covered.
