A Little History to last year's Patrons' Porch House

Don't forget to say Happy Birthday! One hundred years ago Arthur Eugene Reynolds (1872-1935), a Salisbury businessman, constructed his new home at 129 South Ellis Street. This building is the exact copy of the stately Delaware Building from the 1907 Jamestown Exposition, organized to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the founding of Jamestown, Virginia. Delaware and twenty other states were invited to construct homes designed by notable architects. William Draper Brinckle designed the Delaware Building, which is today on Admiral's Row at the Norfolk (Va.) Naval Station. The two buildings have the same wood shingle exterior, cove molding, Palladian windows, portico, Doric columns, paneled entrance doors and twin stucco chimneys.
