Some front porches get used and some do not. It seems they were used much more in days gone by. I think porches were made to be used by family and neighbors and friends who stop by. They should have a swing and a rocking chair and maybe a glider. I have heard lots of stories from my mother and her cousins who remember really using a certain front porch and the rocking chairs on it on Morgan Terrace in Marion, North Carolina, the home of their grandparents, Gus and Eva Watkins. Gran had several pictures of various family members on their front porch. It’s my pleasure to begin sharing them here.
