Our History

With a population of 276, Bowlus is a small town with a big heart. Bowlus was platted on July 1, 1907 and was incorporated into a village in 1910.

A station house and numerous stores were built, prospering from the rich trade from nearby farmers. Bowlus is located in Two Rivers Township in the south central part of Morrison County, approximately 25 miles north of St. Cloud and 15 miles south of Little Falls.
