Our History

Syracuse has a very unique bowling history. So being one of the oldest bowling communities in the U.S., we have taken the opportunity of collecting information from bowlers scrapbooks, the Onondaga Historical Association, the Syracuse Public Library, the Post-Standard, the Herald Journal and the Herald American. We are going to document some of the highlights of bowling in Syracuse dating back to the 1870's and we will be updating some of this information periodically as it becomes available.

The first bowling match in Syracuse history was held in 1879 at Lenehans Bowling Alley, which was located in the basement of the Wieting Opera House.
