Back Porch Restoration

The back porch was one of the first parts of the Blake House to be restored  when the Johnson Wax Fund provided a generous grant in 1978. At forty years old that porch was in need of renewed work.

A photograph of the back porch on the Blake House shows the peeling paint on the square columns. The floor also needed to be replaced.

Below, here is the porch today, fully restored and looking its best!
