The Sunday porch: Madison, Georgia

Stokes-McHenry House, 240 S. 2nd St., Madison, Georgia, 1939 or 1944, by Frances Benjamin Johnston, via Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division.

This porch is certainly a strong contender for “best in latticework.”  The woodwork around the front door is not bad either.

The house was built in the 1820s in the Federal style. The porch was given its current Italianate and Gothic features in the 1850s. It still stands — the property of descendants of its original owners.
