The alley, which is located inside the White House, was “first installed in 1973 during the Nixon Administration. Since its installation, many presidents and first families have enjoyed use of the bowling alley,” a press release from FLOTUS office read.

“The original 1973 design lasted until 1994 under the Clinton Administration, which oversaw the last major renovation,” it added. “Since then, various odds and ends have been refreshed over time.” (RELATED: Tiffany Trump Stuns In Sleeveless Black Dress At WH Christmas Party)
