The Center Valley Well House is a historic pump house on the grounds of the Center Valley Elementary School on Arkansas Highway 124 in Russellville, Arkansas. It is an open-walled square stone structure, consisting of low stone walls and corner posts, which support a shallow-pitch pyramidal roof. The roof has exposted rafter ends in the Craftsman style, and the walls are capped by concrete coping. Two of the walls have openings, which provide access (other than climbing on and over them) to the interior of the structure, which has a concrete floor. It was built in 1940 to shelter the well providing water to the original 1939 school building, using materials left over from its construction. It is a distinctive, yet modest, example of WPA architecture in the community.

The structure was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1992.
