Members welcome at the Milltown Historical Society!
My grandfather, Michael Stankowicz moved from NYC to Milltown to open Stank,s grocery store. This was around 1916. He brought his wife and three children, my Mother Victoria Dobrzynsi being a baby at the time. this store was on the corner of South and Broad Street. He prospered and then opened the first Bowling Alley in tHe area. 4 lanes. Grandpa ran this for years. Another child came to the family, a boy Al Stankowicz. Al grew up went to war with the Army came home and continued to run the Bowling Alley. Now grand pop had two thriving businesses. He was able to purchase 7 houses in the area. when grandopo passed away my Mom moved to the property and renovated and opened Doby,s Deli. she continued for 15 years. My brother then opened Doby,s Sub Shop for years. The Stankowicz-Dobrzynski legacy is strong in Milltown.
My brother Al Doby,s Sub Shop has lived in the family home for the past 75 years on South. God Bless my family for generations living in the "Best Little Town in the State".
