Bower is a town in South Australia, approximately half way between Eudunda and Morgan on the Thiele Highway. 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 on the Morgan railway line and sent to Adelaide. A school operated in the town between 1917 and 1961.
