McNeill received one of the first liquor licenses in the state of Colorado after prohibition was repealed, and the establishment became the Owl Bar and Cafe.
Frank McNeill owned the building and business until sometime during WWII when he sold it to Francis Stockdale. Maureen McNeill remembers the wooden partitions between the booths in the café and how big the restaurant seemed.
