The Evolution of the American Front Porch

Porch1

"Porches are as synonymous with American culture as apple pie. While not
unknown in colonial times, they rose to nationwide popularity in the decades
before the Civil War, and remained in fashion for almost one hundred years.
Ironically, the very social and technological forces that made them both popular
and possible were eventually responsible for their decline."

- from Kahn, Preserving Porches
