The porch is almost as synonymous with the South as sweet tea. After all, when you think of colonial homes in the South, a huge white house with columns and a porch comes to mind. With the industrial era, Americans had more free time to spend socializing, and before TV, the telephone, or the radio, porches served as meeting places for neighbors to socialize. Sitting on the porch and watching the world go by was a popular pastime that many engaged in. Screens were added to keep the bugs at bay as well.
