The invitation reads that the McNeill St Pumping Station, built in 1887, is to open as a museum showcasing steam technology, area history and the story of clean water in Shreveport's growth.

There will be an opening ceremony Wed, Ap 25, at 12:15 pm. On hand will be La Sec of State Jay Dardenne.

Finding this historic jewel at 142 N Common St has been problematic for new visitors. Call 221-3388 if you need help.

The answering machine says "Waterworks Museum: open weekdays noon to 4 pm, and Sats, 10 to 4."

Industry-minded and symmetry-minded photographers will find themselves in high cotton.
