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!
