This Remote New Hampshire Bowling Alley Is Also A Pub
Not many places in the country can claim to be the oldest of anything. In fact, as math would have it – there can be just one of any given “oldest thing.” With those odds, New Hampshirites should be pretty proud that the oldest candlepin bowling alley is located in a small, unassuming town. But, in addition to that we’re pretty excited that this place is not only a great place to bowl, but it’s also a great pub in its own right. The well-known red building is owned by a local 20-something who named the spot after his freshman dorm room number when he bought the lanes after graduating.
