This storied historic building once housed three generations of accomplished men from the Byrnes family. Col. William H. Byrnes, born in Ireland in 1845, immigrated to America as a boy and rose to the presidency of the Hibernia Fire Insurance Co. His remarkable journey earned him the rank of Colonel on the military staffs of five successive governors of Louisiana. His son, William H. Byrnes, Jr., served as a Louisiana Senator, contributing to the establishment of Loyola University of New Orleans through legislation. Continuing the family legacy, William H. Byrnes, III, attained the esteemed position of Chief Judge of the Louisiana 4th Circuit Court of Appeal, leaving an indelible mark on the state’s judicial landscape.
