A photograph of Queen City Swimming Pool. The pool and bath house were designed by Don Buel Schuyler, an apprentice to architect Frank Lloyd Wright, and were constructed as a WPA project during the Great Depression.

The pool was used from 1943 to 1989. The pool was filled in with dirt in 2002 and the bath house was converted to become the Mildred Westervelt Warner Transportation Museum in 2011.

The structure was placed on the National Registry of Historic Places in 1992 for its architectural and historical significance.
