History fans will find themselves drooling over this historic Italianate style house. It was built in 1883 for William Byers, the founder of the Rocky Mountain News. Later, William Gray Evans, president of the Denver Tramway Company, lived here. The house and everything inside it was made a museum in 1981, and it was restored to its look in the 1910s. The museum is only visitable by guided tour. It is an excellent, informative tour, through charming rooms filled with original artefacts. The tour tells the story of how these two men helped shape Denver and Colorado's history, politics and education. You can even have tea parties (by appointment) for 12-25 people.
