If you like history and learning about life in days past, this is an excellent experience. A vintage house owned by two very important families in the development of Denver. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and did a really good job. Much of the furnishings are original since the Evans family deed the house to the non-profit soon after... More

Great place to learn about the territorial time of Colordao. Our tour guide, Ruth, was very helpful and knowledgeable. This is a tiny piece of history preserved in downtown Denver.

We visited on a Saturday morning, and were given a very warm and friendly greeting. We were lucky enough to be given a 'private' tour with a very experienced, knowledgeable and friendly guide and two lovely people who were training to become guides. We were extremely interested to hear the history of the house and it's residents, particularly Mr Evan's... More

My husband and I were both delighted with our decision to visit the Byers-Evans House. Our guide was very informative and did an excellent job of weaving the history of the Byers and the Evans families and their importance to the Denver area into her presentation. She provided details about the family members, their contributions to the community, and how... More

This attraction was a last minute stop on the way to the Art museum, as it is in the same block as the Denver Art museum. Wonderful home, sprawling, huge, with no barriers or gates. As there have been only 2-3 owners, it contains much of the original family heirlooms, and is restored to its 1911 look. absolutely wonderful.

I came here on Night of the Museums and it was the attraction I enjoyed the most, despite the fact that they were only giving a short version of their regular tour. You could tell the staff really love their job. Our tour leader was great and she was extremely knowledgeable on the history of the house and did not... More

When we bought our tickets for History Colorado Museum, they gave us free passes to B-E House (I think B-E gives you a coupon for money off at History Colorado). Going through the house (recommend this for a day that is not very hot as there is no A/C), one can get the sense of how well-off families used to... More

This mansion is just down the street from the Denver Art Museum. It is a house that is more than 100 year sold and was originally owned by the man who was also the owner of the Rocky Mountain News. It passed down to another family and finally ended up being owned by the historical society. It is a wonderful... More

This was an unexpected highlight of a brief trip to Denver. One of a core of historical sites in the downtown area, the house is exceptional in it's collection of 90% of furniture and artifacts from the original families. The guided tour provided information about the house and the families who lived there in the context of the fledgling state... More

Visitors can upon a small admission price complete a guided tour of this historical house. The tour was informative and gave an insight into the early history and the 1920s era of the house. The family had donated back many of their family treasures and heirlooms, so that it is decorated in that era. Our guide was very knowledgeable and... More
