Located in eastern Arapahoe County, Byers is a small plains community founded in 1873. Around 1,300 people live in the area but many of the residents commute to the Denver metro area for work. Byers is 47 miles from downtown Denver and is situated along I-70, just east of Strasburg.

Byers was named after William Byers, one of the early settlers in the Denver area. He founded the first newspaper in the state, the Rocky Mountain News, and was an accomplished outdoorsman. He served as Albert Bierstadt’s guide when the famed artist painted the masterpiece “Storm in the Rocky Mountains” on Mount Evans.

This Colorado high plains town has been a traditional farming community but now attracts people who want a slower pace of life and lower cost of living. The average home price in Byers is well under that of Denver homes, and many are fairly new homes situated on substantial property. There are also many lots/land for sale on which you can build your dream home in Byers.

The Byers School District, based in town, includes an elementary school as well as a junior/senior high school.

Byers is home to May Farms, a working farm dedicated to establishing family traditions and creating experiences tailored to accommodate the character of your special event. Acres of corn, an ocean of vibrant yellow sunflowers and a fresh water fish pond are a few of the features on this farm. Weddings, company parties and family get-togethers are all occasions hosted by May Farms.
