Here is just a peek at the interior of the famous and historic Stevens House in Tucson's El Presidio district. Check out the beautiful painted lintel! In the 1800's Hiram Stevens attempted to kill his wife (the shot was deflected by her heavy silver hair comb!) and killed himself in this house. Now in the 21st century the house has been converted into a wonderful restaurant, Cafe A la C'art and is adjacent to the Tucson Museum of Art.
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
