The heavy storms of mid-September 2008 caused the collapse of the roof of the Bowl-Era Lanes in Hammond, IN. According to the fire inspector, the brick walls are also in danger of collapsing.

The bowling alley was first built in 1940 and originally housed a skating rink on the 2nd floor. According to the September 26, 2008 article in The Times, the Bowl-Era closed in 1995.

The Bowl-Era is known for its mosaic tile "bowling man". 10-08
