The Byers-Evans house/mansion (Victoria) tour is an experience like no other. It is like stepping into a time machine and going back in time to the early 1900’s. The house has ornate decor; glittering crystal chandeliers, mahogany rugs the color of a vibrant sunset, fireplaces adorned by pale candles and the feeling of the connection and family love that once engulfed the house.

The Byers-Evans house, otherwise known as Victoria, is a house that was occupied for 98 years. Victoria was built in 1883, and was active all throughout the years till 1981. A total of 10 Evans have lived in this mansion, not including countless servants. In 1984, this house was owned by John Evans (1814 - 1897) and Margaret Gray (1830 - 1906), husband and wife. John was known for being the second territory governor. They had a total of three kids, whose names were William, the oldest, Evan, middle, and Anne, youngest. The only person from this list who had kids was William. His spouse was Cornelia Lunt, and they had four children of their own. But today, we will focus on Anne Evans, artistic daughter of John and Margaret Evans.
