Located in eastern Barber [BA] County, Sharon lies between US-160 and a little-used railroad.  St. Boniface Church (1949) and School (1958) are well-maintained but the parochial school is no longer open.  The nearby public schools are down to three grades; the rest of the kids are bused into Medicine Lodge.

The Wisner Library in downtown is in a beautiful old brick building.  Inside, most of the books are kept in old glass-front wood cabinets.
