General Notes: Established in the 1800s as a Butterfield Stagecoach stop, 1920s it was a roping arena, it was expanded in 1946 and 1958. Rustic Western homestead with stone fireplaces and extensive use of wood paneling and rafters inside. In the 1920s, cowboys used the land to host Sunday roping competitions while also sharing a drink and a meal. In 1947, Lil’ Abner’s opened as a bar run by optician Larry Lewis and his wife Duchess, a former Hollywood dancer. Many of the early customers were cowboys and ranch hands who made the trip there on what was then a two-lane dirt road. In 1958, the property was purchased by Pima County Supervisor and Tucson nightclub owner Lambert Krauthammer. He built a dance floor and the first outdoor grill and BBQ pits in Tucson and they began cooking steaks and Li’l Abner’s transformed into a full-fledged restaurant. Currently a destination restaurant. submitted by: Laura Cortelyou
