About Warner Robins, Georgia

Warner Robins was formerly named York and Wellston which in the past was only a stop for trains to be used by local farmers. During the Second World War, the town desires to gain a military base and frankly I don’t get the sense of why they wanted one. But in order to get the base, the town accepted an agreement for its name to be changed to Warner Robins, after Augustine Walter Robins, a Brigadier General. That military base was a repair depot for the Army Air Corps named Robins Air force Base founded in the year 1947 that is currently a logistics center for USAF’s Materiel Command. It got the nickname of “International City” due to the residents of Warner Robins coming from around the globe thanks to the air force base situated there.
