Bowling Hall of Fame closes its doors in St. Louis - Breaking news - Belleville News Democrat: "The International Bowling Hall of Fame closed its doors for the last time Saturday. The owners decided not to be part of the new Ball Park Village, so the museum is moving to Arlington, Texas.

For the past 20 years, the International Bowling Hall of Fame has displayed pictures, memoriabilia and photos for bowling fans in St Louis. 'A lot of people they come here and they are surprised because they didn't realize there's such a long history dating back 5, 000 years,' says Sandy Ellebracht, Director of Visitor Services."
