Ads from the Past: Uptown Lanes

Hennepin-Lake, History — By on February 20, 2013 6:37 am

For over 40 years, a bowling alley operated at 3033 Hennepin Avenue. Known for much of its existence as Uptown Lanes, the bowling alley ultimately closed to make way for Calhoun Square. Today, the building is no longer there but was located approximately where Kitchen Window today is located.

The bowling alley opened in 1939, replacing an auto garage.

How cities work and change, how they are the product of their inhabitants and outside forces, and the resulting livability keep me thinking and dreaming about the future. I work in transit oriented development and have a background in urban real estate development. I am Past President of an Uptown business organization, grew up in Uptown, was on an Uptown neighborhood association Board, and am an Uptown and Lyn-Lake historian.
