The Shreveport Water Works Museum held a fundraiser to benefit the museum with renovations and awareness of this National Historic Landmark. The museum houses the McNeill Street Pumping Station which is the last known steam-powered municipal water treatment plant in the United States until it closed in 1980. The Shreveport Water Works Museum showcases steam engines and examples of the evolution of water purification technology over the last 130 years. Right next door is the Shreveport Railroad Museum which showcases the history of railroading in our area since 1860. Free admission to both museums.
