Warner Transportation Museum

Transportation Museum opens its doors

An audience of financial, aesthetic and political supporters applauded the opening of the Mildred Westervelt Warner Transportation Museum on Tuesday morning, the culmination of planning and renovations that took about seven years.

The museum, featuring artifacts, replications, photographs and iPad displays of the area’s history as reflected through rivers, roads, rails and other forms of transport, was built in the old Queen City Pool Bathhouse on River Road.

The bathhouse and pool were added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1992, for design by Don Buel Schuyler, a student of Frank Lloyd Wright, and historic significance as a Works Project Administration structure built during the Great Depression.”  (Excerpt  from article by Mark Hughes Cobb, The Tuscaloosa News.)
