Long Description:
Bowers School is located about six miles west of Wilburton off Highway 270. This is a two-room school about 28 x 68 ft. constructed of cut and coursed native sandstone, which is now painted a sand color.

The school was constructed in 1936-1937 by the WPA, and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1988.
