History.

The name honours David Bower, a South Australian Member of Parliament (1865 – 1887) who donated land in the state for institutional purposes.   By 1916, Bower had become a dispatch centre for  mallee timber and roots. These were loaded at the railway station and sent to Adelaide.  A school operated in the town between 1917 and 1961.
