Area code 507 by pc10201


									Area code 507
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Area code 507 is the telephone numbering plan code for the
southern fifth of Minnesota, including cities such as
Rochester, Mankato, Worthington, Fairmont and Austin. It
was the third area code created for use in the state in 1954,
following the original 218 and 612. It was carved out of the
southern portion of the original 218 territory.
In the original 1947 plan, area codes with a middle digit of "0"
(zero) were assigned only to states that were entirely covered
by a single area code. Area code 507, and area code 607 in
New York, were the first area codes with a middle digit of "0"
to be assigned in states that had more than one area code.
The region directly bordered 612 (to the south) until that area
code was divided up in the 1990s. The western half of 507
bordered area code 320 starting in 1996, and then later came
to border area code 651 (1998) and area code 952 (2000).
The northern border of 507 was modified slightly so that
growing communities in and near the Twin Cities would be
more closely linked with that region by telephone. 612 has
now shrunk down to include just Minneapolis and a few
surrounding suburbs, and no longer borders 507.
