Sadly, the big bowlng pin is not there any more. I was born and raised in TH, happened upon your website, returned home looking forward to taking my picture holding the bowling pin that I have seen time and again growing up, and it's gone.

There is a giant bowling pin on top of the Terre Haute Bowling Center in Indiana. I'm not sure what the history is behind it.
