This month, #THNOC presents “Working for the Williamses” a special tour that tells the stories of the skilled men and women who managed the couple’s homes in New Orleans and Santa Barbara, CA. Our founders, Kemper and Leila Williams, employed a staff of eight: a chauffeur, butler, cook, housemaid, laundress, personal maid, secretary, and gardener. The tour adds another layer to the mid century home of the elegant couple, and is available at 11 a.m. Tuesday through Sunday ($5 general admission, free for members). Book a tour today though our link-in-profile. .
