Winston Salem NC, two separate cities officially joined with a hyphen in 1913 to become Winston-Salem NC. This metropolitan southern city is chocked full of wonderful front porches.

Mary and I were fortunate to visit the Winston Salem and Clemmons area in search of front porch ideas. We were struck by the diversity of front porch designs that ranged from southern country to arts and crafts.

We found unique design ideas for roofs, railings, and landscaping and tried to capture them for you in our front porch pictures.
