Keeping Billiard History Alive and Well

Founded by Mr. D.B. Bond and Ms. Joanne M. Charron,
Chicago Billiard Museum is an Illinois non-profit institution
organized for the purposes of preserving, sharing, and promoting the
extensive history of billiard culture and industry in Chicago, and
across the United States.

In addition, our goal is a continued effort to invigorate the game(s),
illustrate their democratic and intellectual worth, and provide a
positive form of social interaction and sportsmanship that will not
only strengthen billiard related activities, but also facilitate and create
economic growth for the industry as a whole.
