This Queen Anne style porch has wonderful scroll-cut ornamental trim. The Victorian love of ornament is one of the defining characteristics of the age.
Porches are character-defining features on many historic houses.
Unfortunately, their exposed position makes them vulnerable to deterioration and they are often lost due to neglected maintenance. Original porches are always a character defining feature of a house and should be preserved or restored if at all possible.
Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners includes information on porch repair and designing appropriate and compatible replacements for porches that have been lost.
