    My grandparents bowled there and I also bowled at “The Fan”. This is where Marion Ladewig made her start in bowling.

      Thanks for your note. The Fanatorium was probably most famous for its Marion Ladewig connection. Another fact–not as well known–is that Therman Gibson also learned the game there. That makes a pretty impressive pedigree for any bowling center.
