The duckpin bowling alley was built in the 1920’s by Hope Webbing Company in an effort to prevent its employees from unionizing. Despite voting for unionization likely in the 1930’s, the owners decided to leave the bowling alley operational indefinitely. Its existence and preservation was one of the main factors in Urban Smart Growth‘s decision to acquire and preserve the mill.
Upon restoration, the alley saw its first use in over 20 years. It now has the chance to continue providing activity for years to come! To the best of our knowledge, it is one of, if not the last, surviving industrial recreation duckpin bowling alleys in the United States.
