Right many houses along Monument Avenue have similar style of front porches. It was typical feature of the South.

The way of life in the south made me want to slow down, sit on such porch, (they seem to have more porches down South than up North), and drink a glass of something cool and refreshing. Life is beautiful... in the South :-).
