Current Exhibit

Celebrating 130 Years: Completion of the George Reyer Pumping Station and the 8th Avenue Reservoir

The George Reyer Pumping Station and the 8th Avenue Reservoir, both completed in 1889, are two of Nashville's architectural treasures. Both structures are listed on the National Register of Historic Places and are still in operation today.

Metro Water Services has set up an exhibit at Metro Archives commemorating the 130th anniversary of the completion of the 8th Avenue Reservoir and the George Reyer Pumping Station. The exhibit will run through the month of August, and it is located in the West Reading Room at Metro Archives. In this display, you can see documents and artifacts from both Water Services and the Metro Archives collections that map the history of these two structures, as well as the development of the Metro Water Services Department.
