Warner Robins was founded in 1942, separated from the town of Wellston. The town was named after U.S. Air Force General Augustine Warner Robins. It became a town in 1943 and a juridical person as a city in 1956.
In the 1940 census, the town of Wellston had few people, mainly peasants and their families. The railway station was a prominent landmark in the town. There was a small mill and a variety shop in Wellston. The peach orchard became a part of the surrounding land.
World War II changed this aspect. The Department of War has planned to build a supply base for the Air Force in the southeastern United States. With the help of influential U.S. House of Representatives member Carl Vinson, Charles Bossik, the leader of Wellston, worked with Macon officials to draft a bill to bring the air force base to Houston County. In June 1941, the U.S. government drank this proposal, which included 3,108 acres (12.4 km2) of land.
The air base was initially called the Wellston Army Air Base when it was established in 1942. The first commander was Colonel Charles E. Thomas, Thomas wished to name the base in honor of its supporter Augustine Warner Robbins. Robbins were called by their middle name, Warner. The rule was that the name of the base was changed to the name of the nearest town, so we couldn't name it Robins. Colonel Thomas could not stop this, and persuaded Boss Watson and the leaders of other towns to change his name to Wellston. On September 1, 1942, the town was renamed Warner Robbins. Soon after that, on October 14, 1942, the base was renamed and Warner Robins Army Air Base. The town name Warner Robbins is the only one in the United States.
The Robbins Air Force Base is not within the current city. U.S. National Route 129 (Georgia State Route 247) separates the base and the city.
