The Center for Colorado Women’s History focuses on scholarship, research, lectures, tours and exhibits that expand the understanding and collective memory of the history of women in Colorado. Most importantly, the Center is connecting local stories to the broader stories of women’s history worldwide.

The historic house has been the home to inspiring women since 1883. It has been beautifully restored to the era of 1912-1924 and is furnished with the family's original belongings. Guided house tours weave together the stories of the many women, such as Anne Evans, who lived and worked in the home and the impact of the families on early Denver.


The house is on view by guided tours only, once an hour on the half hour.
On view in the gallery will be a new exhibition about women's suffrage in Colorado. More than 25 years before the rest of the nation adopted the 19th amendment, Colorado voters removed gender discrimination at the polling place. Learn about how women got the vote in 1893 and the impact they had with it. On the house tours, visitors will learn about the inspiring women who lived and worked in home with a focus on life in the 1910s-1920s.
