Beginning Wednesday, Jan. 10, the home of THNOC’s founders—General and Mrs. L. Kemper Williams—will be decorated for the Carnival season. Photographs, favors and ephemera from the Williamses’ personal collection will be on display throughout the house. Guests will be able to see favors, Carnival royalty crown jewels and historic costume designs and invitations acquired by the passionate preservationists. For this special exhibition, the house will be open for self-guided tours, and visitors are invited to immerse themselves in mid-20th century design and Mardi Gras traditions at their own pace. This special exhibition will be on view Tuesday through Sunday until Feb. 25, 2018. Please note all THNOC properties will be closed Feb. 10–13 for Mardi Gras.
