Bowman and Bowman County

Bowman is an interesting town of about 1700, founded in 1907. It is located in the Southwest corner of the state, near the borders with South Dakota and Montana. Bowman is the county seat of Bowman County.

Bowman has an excellent museum, the Pioneer Trails Regional Museum, and a nice historic district with several buildings of historical and/or architectural interest. The museum has many well-presented displays showing the history of the region and the town itself.

Fort Dilts State Historic Site

Fort Dilts State Historic Site is the location of a makeshift fort of prairie sod made by members of a wagon train and their 50 man military escort to defend themselves against hostile Sioux Indians in September 1864. The fort was named after Corporal Jefferson Dilts who died defending the wagon train. The site is located near Bowman in the Southwest corner of the state.
