TommyHawks Axe House closing

Posted online

A Springfield axe-throwing business that got its start in 2018 is closing its doors.

TommyHawks Axe House announced its closure plans in a March 1 Facebook post. The 1631 W. College St. venture's last day is scheduled March 30.

The post did not give a reason for the closure.

"We’ve seen thousands of locals and out-of-state patrons, held numerous large-scale tournaments, hosted countless leagues, and we’ve created memories to last a lifetime," the post reads. “We are so thankful for each individual that has supported this endeavor from day one and the many who continue to come through our doors each week."

Founders Tommy and Kacey Jennings could not be reached for additional comment by deadline.

They started the business in March 2018, leasing 12,000 square feet across the street from Route 66 Car Museum, according to past reporting.
