Field Methods students visit the Littlefield Home

Students in Fran Gale's Field Methods course recently visited the Littlefield Home, a 19th century residence located on the University of Texas campus. Constructed in 1893 for UT benefactor George Littlefield, this historic house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The site visit provided an opportunity for the students to examine the variety of materials that were used to construct the LIttlefield Home. After identifying the building materials, the students will study deterioration processes that have affected each material and use elevations drawings of the LIttlefield Home to record existing conditions.
