Come see our 130-year-old Victorian treasure! The McNeill pumping station is a turn-of-the-century (the LAST century, that is) water works that was THE LAST KNOWN STEAM-POWERED MUNICIPAL WATER TREATMENT PLANT IN THE UNITED STATES when its steam engines were finally retired in 1980.

Ask for Kevin to be your tour guide and show you the wonders that engineers working with pencil, paper and slide rule 100 years ago were able to accomplish. This is a go-not-miss while in Shreveport!

A NATIONAL HISTORIC LANDMARK AND A NATIONAL CIVIL ENGINEERING LANDMARK

The Shreveport Water Works Museum is free and open to the public, but DONATIONS are happily accepted. Though the Museum belongs to the City of Shreveport, the Museum Friends, the McNeill Street Pumping Station Preservation Society (We know. Long name.) is responsible for paying employees and other costs of keeping it open. Every little bit helps us. Thank you!
