After deal falls through, Vernon Lanes to remain open through December

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The place known as the oldest active bowling alley in the nation will live-on a little longer.

This Saturday was supposed to be the last day for people to enjoy the iconic Vernon Lanes in Butchertown, which dates back nearly 100 years.

The owners put the building up for sale, however the deal fell through.

Manager Scottie Lawler says he's been overwhelmed by how many people have called to book final parties.

So Vernon Lanes will remain open at least until late December.
