Press Release posted 6/14/14 – On the west side of the Mount Wilson Trail, Lizzie’s Trail Inn had its start about 1890 as a lunch stand and coffee shop. Walt Douglas ran this stand in 1905. By the time Mr. W.P. Caley purchased the entire property in June 1907, it included the stand, a store, house and stables. The stand was moved across the trail to its present location in 1913. Even though Lizzie only ran the restaurant for 13 years, there are many great stories related to her ownership.
The Sierra Madre Historical Preservation Society will be celebrating that ownership with a Chicken and Ravioli Dinner at the Mt. Wilson Trail Park, located next to the Richardson House and Lizzie’s Trail Inn, in Sierra Madre. You will be able to not only enjoy a great dinner, but also visit our native plant demonstration garden, view the new Interactive Digital Storyboard in Richardson House with presentations by the Sierra Madre Library’s Teen Docents, participate in our raffle of items donated by local merchants, and visit with Lizzie in person!
We can’t wait to see you there for an evening of good food, good fun, good entertainment, and good friends!
