Our Backstage Venue is used today for parties, stage plays, dances, lunch meetings, concerts and book-signings. We consider it a fully versatile entertainment space.
It was originally a six-lane bowling alley, built in 1941. The room is 40ft wide and 100ft long…..plenty big enough for up to 120 guests! A section of the original six bowling lanes is still visible, though now they’re 21ft by 40ft and used as a fabulous dance floor.
Backstage operated as a bowling alley until 1983. The change to an event venue was made when one of the owners thought bowling was passe.
We’ve added the four large windows and a 10ft by 20ft stage and the large bar area.
