Beautiful Antique Wooden Sign. COCHATO CLUB LADIES TOURNAMENT RECORDS! 100+ yr old Beautiful WOODED COCHATO CLUB Bowling Sign BRAINTREE Massachusetts. For much of its nearly nine decades, the Cochato Club on Elm Street was the place to be for bowling tournaments, Friday night card games and Saturday night dinner dances. But dwindling membership spelled the end of what was believed to be the towns oldest social club, The Queen of Clubs. The club was formed in March of 1899, and membership was limited to people living within a 5-mile radius of the club. The club at one time boasted 800 members, and, after the 5-mile rule was lifted, it had members from around the South Shore and Boston. On Friday nights, a group of men would get together and play cards in a small room that contained two rows of 2-foot-tall lockers that held their liquor bottles. Its main function room could accommodate 150 people. Dinner dances were held on Saturday nights, with couples dancing to the music of a three-piece band. And there were three candlepin bowling lanes in the basement. The walls were covered with wooden boards bearing the names of past tournament winners dating back to 1906. The basement also contained a Coke machine that had been modified to purvey another product. A paper sign read, 50¢ Cold Beer. The club also sponsored family dinners and childrens parties, game nights, costume parties and private functions during its September-through-June season. The lodge occupied the building for nearly three decades until it merged with the Weymouth lodge.
