Historic Sites of Manitoba: Billy Mosienko Lanes (1136 Main Street, Winnipeg)

William “Billy” Mosienko was a five-time NHL All Star from Winnipeg’s North End. In 1947, he opened Billy Mosienko Lanes, a still-operational bowling alley on Winnipeg’s Main Street in partnership with fellow Blackhawk Joe Cooper. He bought out his teammate a number of years later. The building’s south wall hosts a mural of Billy painted by his granddaughter-in-law Jennifer Mosienko.
