The USD 257 Board of Education voted Monday to discontinue holding classes at the Bowlus Fine Arts Center.

In 1960, Iola banker Thomas Bowlus left in his final will and testament directions for the creation of a fine arts center in downtown Iola and instructions that the center be used for the arts education of the district’s students.

The will also named school board members as trustees of the center.
