Entering Sacco’s Bowl Haven in Davis Square is like crossing through a time warp. Not only for the faded black and white photos on the walls, but for the number of patrons who crowd the lanes, like it was the old days.
The bowling alley witnessed a lot of bowling’s history as a sport and social institution. The candlepin bowling alley and billiards was established by a father, Joseph B. Sacco Sr., and his son, Ralph, in 1939.
