The Next Generation of Preservationists

Georgia Trust Supporters Under 40

Inherit GA cultivates and prepares the next generation of preservation leaders in Georgia.

Inherit GA is an exciting initiative of The Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation designed to engage preservation-minded young professionals in educational and social activities that are important to The Georgia Trust’s mission.

Participants visit lesser-known historic sites, take behind-the-scenes tours and take part in preservation efforts that are in progress throughout the state. The Georgia Trust is working to expand Inherit GA Chapters in Georgia by partnering with other historic preservation organizations.

Bowling and Brews at the 1896 Ewart Bowling Alley

Saturday, April 13, 2019 | 8:30 – 9:30 p.m.
Thomasville History Center
725 N. Dawson Street
Thomasville, Georgia 31792

Join Inherit GA during the Spring Ramble in Thomasville for a special after-hours event at what is believed to be the second oldest bowling alley left standing in the United States!

Following the Saturday night Ramble Dinner, join us at the Thomasville History Center’s historic Ewart Bowling Alley for drinks, light snacks, and tons of fun as we try our chances on this historic ten-pin bowling lane.

Oliver Ewart, a banker who split time between New York and Mount Vernon, Ohio, purchased the lot at 725 North Dawson Street in 1893 and built a three-level mansion for the winter months when the Ewart family was in Thomasville. Three years later, he added this ten-pin bowling lane/shooting gallery/gymnasium for his twelve-year-old son, Robert. Built from heart pine, pocket doors separate the bowling lane from the gymnasium area. The bowling alley was restored to its original style in the early 1990s.

Just another reason to attend the Spring Ramble, if you haven’t already signed up!
Remember, Inherit GA members receive discounted registration for the full weekend. Contact Danielle Meunier,, to find out how.

Tickets to this event are $10 per person or $15 per couple.
