Lewiston – Things to do with your Team

A man by the name of Benjamin Bates is largely responsible for putting Lewiston on the map.  This textile tycoon built a mill in Lewiston and started both an economic and population boom in the city.  In the 50 years from 1840 to 1890 the population of the town increased by roughly 20,000.  Many people from the U.S and Canada came in search of jobs and a new start.  Thanks to the influx of people and the success of the textile mill, Lewiston became the wealthiest city in Maine for years.  Lewiston’s proud history and rapid growth has made the city a vibrant destination worth visiting if you’re in Maine.


Museum LA

Lewiston owes a lot of its sustained growth and success as a city to Benjamin Bates and his textile mill.  This mill employed thousands of Lewiston residents, Canadians, and Europeans throughout its existence.  This hugely influential piece of Lewiston’s history is immortalized in Museum LA.  The LA portion stands for Lewiston-Auburn.  Auburn is the neighboring city to the west of Lewiston, located on the other side of the Androscoggin River.  Museum LA focuses primarily on the social and technological history of Lewiston and the Bates Mill.

While you walk through the museum, you will be greeted with an extensive look through Lewiston’s past.  Old clothing, shoes, machinery, photos, and other artifacts are displayed for you to investigate.  Delving further into the history of Bates Mill, Museum LA doesn’t just concern itself with the mill, but also with the employees who worked there.  You can get a firsthand experience into the lives of these mill workers.  Museum LA also has featured rotating exhibits that are worth checking out. 35 Canal St, Lewiston, ME 04240

Sparetime Recreation

Bowling in Northeastern United States can be a little different than what you might be used to.  Sparetime Recreation does offer normal 10 pin bowling that your team knows and loves.  Rent out a couple lanes, order a few pizzas and bowl until your heart’s content.  However, if you want a unique bowling experience, try candlepin bowling.  Only played in Canada and northeastern states, candlepin bowling is fairly similar to tenpin bowling, but getting a strike is noticeably harder due to the shape of the pins.

There are a few subtle differences between the two variations as well.  If you are interested in candlepin bowling, but are unsure how to play, don’t hesitate to ask a staff member for some help.  This might be one of the only opportunities you will get to try this unique kind of bowling.  Don’t miss out on this amusing activity. 24 Mollison Way, Lewiston, ME 04240
