Looks good…

This is the first annual Conference on the Front Porch.  The conference aims to explore the significance of the front porch in the American South, both from an architectural perspective as well as a sociological perspective.  The two day conference will explore the origins of the front porch, its stylistic evolution, when they became popular, the decline in popularity of the front porch, and its resurgence.  The role of the porch in building community, the porch and presidential politics, the porch and music, the porch and race will all be explored in detail.

This two day conference is held at The Mill at Plein Air ““ a 12,000 square foot venue built from entirely reclaimed materials and located in the Plein Air neighborhood in Taylor, MS.  Taylor is a seven minute drive from Oxford and Ole Miss.”
