The Byers-Evans House was home to two prominent Denver families and is one of the city’s most historic landmarks. Built in 1883, it has been beautifully restored to the period between 1912 and 1924. Polished wood finishes, brightly patterned wallpapers, ornate mantles, and period draperies form a backdrop for a rich variety of Evans family furnishings.
Black American West Museum
Founded in 1971 by Paul W. Stewart, the Black American West Museum is dedicated to collecting, preserving and disseminating the contributions of Blacks in the Old West. While famous for telling the story of Black cowboys, the museum showcases stories of all those early Blacks who came west and performed as miners, soldiers, homesteaders, ranchers, blacksmiths, schoolteachers, lawmen, and every other profession needed to build up the West. In fact, the Museum itself is in the home of Dr. Justina Ford, Colorado’s first Black woman doctor.
Four Mile Historic Park
On the banks of Cherry Creek, just four miles from downtown Denver, Four Mile Historic Park is a 12 acre oasis featuring Denver’s oldest standing structure, pioneer exhibits, special events for all ages, and guided tours that transport visitors to Colorado’s frontier past. Once a wayside inn and stage stop, Four Mile House and grounds are the setting for unique family, student, senior and rental activities that offer visitors a unique experience apart from the bustle of their busy lives.
