The Byers–Evans House Museum is a historic house museum in Denver, Colorado, United States.
The Byers–Evans house was built in 1883 by William Byers, the founder of the Rocky Mountain News and was sold to William Gray Evans in 1889. It is an Italianate style house which had several additions made to it over the years. William Evans lived in the home with his wife Cornelia Lunt Gray and their four children, John, Josephine, Margaret and Katharine. William's mother, Margaret Patten Gray Evans, former first lady of Colorado, moved into the home in 1900 with her unmarried daughter, Anne Evans. Members of the Evans family continued to live in the home until 1981.
The house was donated to the Colorado Historical Society in 1981, along with the entire contents of the house. The house has been restored to the 1912–1924 period and includes approximately 90% of the original furniture, glassware, china, and other household items belonging to the Evans family.
The Byers–Evans House Museum is located in Denver, Colorado, at 1310 Bannock St, directly behind the Denver Art Museum. Guided house tours are offered; the museum may not be viewed by self-guided tour. The museum is administered by History Colorado.

  • This was such a fun tour! We got there a bit late but Kat (like cat) 😂 was so awesome and gave us a tour even though we got there late. She was kind and funny and knowledgeable! Beautiful historical home that will make you feel like you stepped back in time. Only $6 dollars for adults and for 12 and under is $4. We came on a Sunday and it was probably the best time too! Tour is about 30 mins.
  • Pretty much is house turned into a museum that shows very good history lesson about one of the oldest families in Denver. Is a 30 min tour and has a tour guide and gift shop. Recommended
