Lexington, VA

Fantastic Front Porches Amidst Civil War History

On the road van
Lexington VA can boast that it is home to Washington and Lee University and the Virginia Military Institute (VMI). But Mary and I know it also can be proud of its many wonderful front porches. Located in western Virginia not far from the West Virginia border, Lexington is a wonderfully scenic and friendly small town.



Tree lined streets, picket fences, and fine porches make this a neat place to visit for sure. We had the pleasure of exploring its many side streets in search of porches we know you'd enjoy too.

You will find lots of history in this small community. Robert E. Lee and Andrew Jackson are buried here. Cyrus McCormick, whom we all read about as kids in school, and his horse-drawn mechanical reaper was invented on his farm not too far from Lexington. But I digress, it's the porches we want to show you.

There's something special about a beautiful, engaging front porch. We really like the gate over the front brick steps made to match the porch balustrade.

Sawn balusters, like the one below, are perfect for adding curb appeal and privacy too. Sawn balusters are normally custom made so you can assist in creating the design. You can choose either traditional sawn wood or if you prefer less maintenance, you can opt for vinyl lattice sawn panels.

A relatively quick and easy way to spruce up your front porch is to paint your door a vibrant color. Add cushions and other outdoor decor in complementary (or even constrasting colors) to create curb appeal envy!

This front entrance is definitely eye-catching.

We love finding great ideas for porches and this is one of them. This decorative lattice screen (below)is perfect for growing vines for color and/or for offering a bit of privacy. Be sure to see our entire section of porch privacy ideas.

Would love to spend an afternoon on this front porch. Decked out with rocking chairs, pillows, and flags - who wouldn't want to sip a little lemonade and watch the world go by.

We love getting small porch ideas and thought you'd really like this one. The bench could be adapted in both style and length to fit almost any small porch of similar size. Add some pillow for color!
