- Guided tours take visitors through one of the city's oldest and most elegant homes, within walking distance of downtown. Rocky Mountain News founder William Byers built the red-brick Victorian home in 1883, and, six years later, the son of John Evans, the state's second territorial governor, purchased it. Byers-Evans House Museum hosts a lot of exhibitions on a regular basis. The Museum Store has gifts and books for people of all ages. The store maintains a good selection of Van Briggle art pottery, made in Colorado Springs.
