This historic home, built in 1883 by Rocky Mountain News publisher William Byers sits right in the heart of the museum district. It wasn't open yet when I was walking around waiting for the Denver Art Museum to open but you can take tours through this elegant residence that is a sharp contrast to the super modern structures that surround it, a reminder of what Denver must have looked like in earlier days.

Union Station in "Lo Do" (lower downtown Denver). The original station opened in June 1881, burned down in 1894 and was immediately rebuilt. There are plans underway to turn the station into a huge transportation center utilizing the original architecture and will include residential, commericial and retail development. This is a very cool area of the city, adjacent to Coors Field and the Riverfront.
