Eli Haddow is a marketing assistant at The Historic New Orleans Collection (THNOC). THNOC is a museum, research center, and publisher dedicated to preserving the history and culture of New Orleans and the Gulf South. In this podcast, Haddow explains the origins of the organization and shares information about the founders, themselves. 

He also highlights THNOC’s participation in the Smithsonian magazine’s Museum Day Live! 2018 program. As Haddow notes, “THNOC is among 25 Louisiana museums participating.” As a Museum Day Live! 2018 participant, THNOC will offer ticket-holders their choice of one free guided tour on Saturday, Sept. 22: the Williams Residence Tour, the Louisiana History Galleries Tour, or the Architecture and Courtyards Tour. Haddow gives a brief description of each tour. He encourages locals to take advantage of this wonderful, free opportunity to learn about the rich and fascinating history that makes New Orleans such a unique and vibrant city with deep roots in the past.
