Find out my last restore date

I recently did a system restore to a Windows 7 Professional PC. I wasn't paying attention to the precise date it said it was restoring it to. Now that its already done, how can I find that out (open System Restore again, go to Event Viewer, etc.)?

john8217--The System Restore procedure should show you a window, just before the list of available Restore Points, that offers to Undo the last System Restore.  The date that System Restore was done is given.  While that does not tell the date of the System Restore Point you have run, you know it cannot be any later than that date.  And by default, the date of the Restore Point you used will be the latest point as of the date System Restore was run.  So, if you were not paying attention, and just accept the Point offered, that is probably the point used.
