Paone's Blackhawk Lanes, Inc. was originally built in 1959 by Wilfred "Coo" and Donna Glick and consisted of eight lanes (now lanes 13 through 20). In 1961, the Glick's expanded the facility by adding twelve more lanes (1 - 12). And in August of 1981, Tony Paone purchased the center and has continued to improve and update the condition and quality of the facility with many renovations and improvements. In October 2005, T.J. Paone purchased the center and became the new owner. Thus keeping the center in the family and continuing the long standing tradition of making this one of the highest regarded centers in the area. Since this time, he has made continuous improvements and enhancements to the center.
