The Crestwood bowl was opened in 1958 by a trio of professional bowlers that included Dick Weber, Pat Patterson and Rich Volling. Eventually Hattie Volling, Rich Vollings mother became the owner followed by her nephew Ray Bluth in 1973. Ray Bluth was also a professional bowler. The bowling alley sits on the 1926 alignment of the Mother Road.

x In 2013 the neon sign that dates to around 1958 was relit after it was restored with help from the Route 66 Association of Missouri's Team Neon and the Bluth family. The St. Louis County Historic Buildings Commission has declared the sign to be an official county landmark.
