Our Story

Donald MacLaren Sr. has been a life-long bowler and always had an interest in bringing an entertainment venture to his hometown of Tewksbury with his son. On February 10, 2014, that idea was born to what is now Wamesit Lanes. The original site of the Motel Caswell where Wamesit Lanes sits, gave the opportunity to thrive in a premiere location. With the help of local contractors, we are proud to say, “we were built by Tewksbury, For Tewksbury”. On November 9, 2015, we celebrated our Grand Opening.

Our Name

Wamesit Lanes

The name comes from the original Wamesit Bowl that once stood on the lot of Home Depot, with the intention to bring back history. The Wamesit Indians of the Abenaki Tribe once inhabited the area where Tewksbury is now located. Wamesit Lanes pays homage to the important part of local history within the name and a replication of the Pow-Wow Oak Tree.  

Firewater Tavern

The term Firewater dates back to the 1600’s and originated from a harmful and potent alcohol consumed by Native Americans.*

*Please consume alcohol responsibly.
