BATH – Demolition of the Steuben Bowling Academy began on Tuesday.
A collapse of a back corner of the Steuben Bowling Academy, built in 1934, occurred the evening of Sept. 29, 2018, a Saturday night when league practice was underway. No one was hurt.
Just 10 days later, the operators of the bowling center posted to their website that the facility would be shutting down permanently. They said without the cash flow from the business, they couldn’t afford to make the necessary repairs.
Steuben County officials are moving forward with a plan that will convert the partially-collapsed Steuben Bowling Academy into 90 additional parking spaces for the busy county office building.
