Bula ( BEW-lə) is an unincorporated community in Bailey County, Texas, United States. According to the Handbook of Texas, the community had a population of 35 in 2000.


The community of Bula was established in 1924 and originally given the name Newsome. Due to a conflict with another Texas post office with the same name, the name was changed to Bula in 1925. Bula had a school in 1925 and a cotton gin in 1929 but never grew significantly. By 1980 the population had risen to only 105 then dropped to thirty-five in 2000.


Bula is located on the level plains of the Llano Estacado in the southeast corner of Bailey County, approximately 22 miles (35 km) southeast of the county seat of Muleshoe, and 7 miles (11 km) east of the Muleshoe National Wildlife Refuge. It is located on Farm to Market Road 54 to the west of Littlefield, the county seat of Lamb County.


Bula had a school in 1925, which later moved and then closed in 1975. The school then burned sometime after. Today, the community is served by the Sudan Independent School District.
