Oscar K. Hiser grew up in Hyattsville and ran a bowling alley before he and wife Mabel built the Hyattsville Bowling Center in 1940 at 5503 Baltimore Ave.
With 24 lanes and a large concession stand the alley was a recreational and social gathering place for 10 years. When Hiser went bankrupt, Fields Buick, located next door, puchased the property and turned it into their dealership showroom. In 1988 this was merged with Lustine's Oldsmobile-Chevrolet. The building was demolished in 2006.
