SHELBURNE FALLS, Mass. (AP) - A Shelburne Falls bowling alley that bills itself as the second-oldest candlepin bowling venue in North America will soon be under new ownership.

Anthony Hanna of Buckland and his son, Tamarack Hanna of Shelburne Falls, have agreed to buy the Shelburne Falls Bowling Alley from current owners Joanne Gaulin and Tammy Dubuque.

Shelburne selectmen will hold a liquor license transfer hearing on Monday.

Tamarack Hanna tells The Recorder (http://bit.ly/1I1mE3q ) of Greenfield that he has fond memories of the alley growing up, and he doesn’t plan to change much.

Gaulin says it’s “time to do something else.”

The alley opened in 1906 and still uses pencil and paper scoring while bowlers sit on wooden benches between frames.

Gaulin says the alley has league results and scores that date to 1907.
