History

The city was originally named York and, later, Wellston, which was little more than a train stop for local farmers.[citation needed] During World War II, to gain a military base, the town agreed to change its name in honor of Brigadier General Augustine Warner Robins.[citation needed] The base was originally an Army Air Corps repair depot named Wellston Army Air Corps Air Depot.[citation needed] When the U.S. Air Force was founded in 1947, the base was named Robins Air Force Base; the logistics headquarters was originally named the Warner Robins Air Materiel Area (WRAMA)[citation needed] and today is called the Warner Robins Air Logistics Center (WR-ALC). The base is the state's largest employer in one location; it has more than 25,000 personnel, mostly civil servants.[3]
