Warner Robins

Warner Robins,

city (1990 pop. 43,726), Houston co., central Ga., in an agricultural region; inc. 1943. The surrounding area yields peanuts, grain, fruit, and livestock. There is diverse manufacturing, including cabinets, avionics equipment, and plastics.

The city grew with the construction of the adjacent Robins Air Force Base, and its economy is centered around that vast military complex. One of the largest air force installations in the South, the base is the home of the Warner Robins Air Logistics Center, the 78th Air Base Wing, and more than 60 other units. The Museum of Aviation on the perimeter of the base is a major tourist attraction.

Before World War II a small country hamlet called Wellston existed on that site. After the air force base was established, the city boomed. The city and base were named for Gen. Warner Robins (1882–1940), considered the originator of the air force's systems of supply and maintenance.
