(DENVER, Colo.) The Byers-Evans house sits a block away from Civic Center Park and a one-minute walk from the Denver Art Museum.

Nationally registered as a historical landmark on Aug. 24, 1970, the Byers-Evans House was built in 1883 for the publisher of Rocky Mountain News, William Byers, according to History Colorado. Byers sold the two-story house in 1889 to the William Gray Evans family.

The property was restored to its 1912-24 appearance and is now the Center for Colorado Women's History, operated by History Colorado.

The historic house museum teaches people about the history of women in Colorado by emphasizing scholarship, research, lectures, tours and exhibits.

The center is open from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Monday, closed Tuesday and Wednesday, open Thursday through Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and open Sunday from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
