This elaborate Victorian home, built by Rocky Mountain News founding editor William Byers in 1883, has been restored to its appearance of 1912–24, when it was owned by William Gray Evans, son of Colorado’s second territorial governor, John Evans. (The Evans family continued to reside here until 1981.) Guided tours describe the architecture and explain the fascinating lives of these prominent Denver families; you can still explore a public gallery if you cannot go on a tour. There is a gift shop. Allow 45 minutes.
