select distinct physical_device_name,  * from backupfile bf
join backupset bs on bf.backup_set_id = bs.backup_set_id
join backupmediafamily bm on bs.media_set_id = bm.media_set_id
where database_name = 'yourdbname'
order by backup_finish_date desc

sorry...misread.  Look at the create_date in this query:

select * from sys.databases

That shows the created date, but is there a date for the last time a DB was restored into that database?
