About the History Behind Camelot Bowl in Collinsville Illinois
The story of Camelot Bowl has been passed down for five generations. It all started back in the day when my great, great, great grandfather, Frank Hartman, opened and operated Hartman Recreation. This was a two-lane bowling center: easy to manage, but hard to serve everyone who wanted to bowl back in 1912. After Frank, the center was passed down to Charles, his great-grandson Arthur, then Artie, and finally to great-great-grandsons, Brent and Robb. Our family started with two-lane center turned it into a ten-lane creation, and now we are proud to boast 32 lanes as Camelot Bowl.
