When the current owners purchased this historic home in King George County, the south facing front porch was missing. Research into the original configuration of the porch revealed that the house had had a number of different porches, including a single story porch on the original house (1829) and, most recently, a two-story screened porch that went across the entire front of the original house and its side additions (1929). The new porch is based closely upon a 19th century photograph of what is thought to be the original porch.
