Behind the comfortable lifestyle of THNOC founders Kemper and Leila Williams was a staff of highly skilled individuals who managed the couple’s homes in New Orleans and Santa Barbara, California. The Williamses employed a staff of eight in New Orleans: a chauffeur, butler, cook, housemaid, laundress, personal maid, secretary, and gardener. For the month of June, The Historic New Orleans Collection will be offering a special tour of the Williams Residence focused on the individuals who spent much of their lives in the Williamses’ employ.
