I sure did.  It was called Recreation Bowling Alley.  Candlepin bowling and it was 4 games for a $1.00.  If you walked down to the Strand Bowling Alley which was next to Plymouth theater, it was 5 games for a $1.00.  It was also downstairs off of Exchange Street (I think).

Those names do not ring a bell.  I went there mostly for the bowling and that was when I was younger.  When I got older and skipped school, I shot most of my pool at someplace on the second floor of a building on Main street.  It was on the west side of Main Street between Pleasant and Foster Walnut street I think.

You could be right on the location Deacon as my recollection is vague too.  It was over 40 years ago.
