Tiffin Ohio Is a Hideaway with
Unique Front Porch Ideas
Tiffin Ohio, the place where Mary and I grew up, met, and married! Our small hometown hasn't changed much but that's ok.
They still have the front porches we came to love and Tiffin may be the reason for this website.
We traveled back to our hometown to capture some front porch ideas, see friends, and to see how our town had grown over the years.
We hope you enjoy photos of our journey, our hometown, and also get some front porch ideas for your own porch!

Tiffin's Jolly's Root Beer Stand - foot long chili dogs and draft root beer doesn't get any better than that. We love Jolly's!

Tiffin Ohio is home to Heidelberg University, Tiffin University, and National Machinery
(the factory my father worked in until he retired).
My grandfather worked as a glass-blower at Tiffin Glass, a world renown glassware manufacturer.
Although no longer in existence, their products have become sought-after antique pieces.
Mary and I grew up in Tiffin, were high school sweethearts, and have fond memories of times past.
Porches are still important, especially in small towns.
They connect us with our neighbors and our past. I spent many hours on that front porch pictured on this page.
It became my fort, the swing became my airplane, and it was always a great hiding place.
Drive down almost any street in Tiffin Ohio and you'll see porches. Not a bad way to spend a day! Who says you can't go home again.
