“Wish I could get down town to visit them more often”
Reviewed May 2, 2012

One of the best films to learn the history of Denver and the mansion is well maintained and has an interesting tour...its the building behind the Art Museum and kind of looks like the Munsters could live there :)

“One of my favorite Denver Tours!”
Reviewed January 25, 2012

This house is steeped in history and so much local flavor.  Do yourself a favor and go.  The price is not expensive and the education you will receive by going is priceless!  Recommend going to see the Molly Brown House in the same day.  Also, if you like Byers Evans, check our the Astor House in Golden, CO too!

“Amazing!”
Reviewed November 12, 2011

Looking into the lives of those who lived so long ago was amazing. And the owners keep their memory alive with the way the house is kept up with furniture, etc from so many years ago. The story that was told to us on our personal our was beautiful.

“A must see home”
Reviewed October 23, 2011

As you might already know, parking is unbearable in Denver. The parking garages were being built, but not completed yet. We were parking and walking to the State Capitol Building when we walked by this home. I thought we would stop on the way back to our car and I am so happy we did!!!!! A very comfy, warm, and informative home. We did see the Molly Brown home, but behind ropes. Here you don't have that. You are able to walk in every room, see everything close up and experience the home just like going to a neighbors house. I would see this home again, and recommend it to anyone.

“Two Families Helped Shape Colorado History”
Reviewed September 7, 2010

Built by the founder of Denver's now extinct newspaper, The Rocky Mountain News, the house sheltered only two families from 1883 until 1981.
The second family to reside there descended from Colorado second territorial governor, John Evans (1862 - 1865). They were a family of achievers, creative and talented in many ways.
Despite stories of the wild west, Colorado was actually built by people with high ideals and big dreams.
Rail fans: These are the folks who built railroads through the Rocky Mountains.
Antique lovers: Almost everything in the house is authentic to the Evans family (1889 - 1981).
I volunteer there, leading tours, and enjoy meeting people from all over who find the house a unique glimpse into Colorado's past.
