The Front Porch: Part Of American DNA
There is a Reason we are called The Front Porch Bar
That is because porches make us feel good. It is a place where we can sit and relax, enjoying the company of family and friends. It is truly a part of our american identity. How did this happen?
The porch has existed since prehistoric times.
The first appearance of the porch in modern history is in Ancient Rome and Greece. The first structures were shaded spaces around an interior garden. Loggias appeared in the middle ages in Italy, that provided a shaded outdoor space.
The origins of the American Front Porch are not very clear
What is know is that through foreign inspiration the architectural concept of porch as we know it today was born. American architecture developed through time as a complex fusion of different cultures.
In the colonies porches did not exist as a common denominator until mid eighteenth century. The influence of climate is a key factor in the evolution of the american front porch. Porches grew first and most quickly in the south. Since colonial times all through present times the front porch has been present in american culture, architecture and way of life.
