Carnton Porch & Columns


Over 20 years ago most of the significant restorative work at Carnton was completed. Since then nearly three-quarters of a million people have visited Carnton. However, that comes with a price. Weather and heavy traffic takes a toll and, while regular maintenance is always ongoing, it is time for the old house to undergo some serious repairs. The back porch, both the lower and upper levels, the balustrades, and all eight of the classic Greek Revival columns need repairs, a thorough cleaning, stripping, and repainting. This work will take several months to complete.
