Texas A&M's Dr. Brent Fortenberry and the students in his Recording Historic Buildings course visited the Brinkley Davis House on September 9, 2018. Dr. Fortenberry is using the structure to teach his students about mid-19th century architecture and construction. Over the course of three visits, the class will also thoroughly study the structure and will document it by creating measured drawings that meet the Historic American Buildings Survey standards. These will be archived in the Library of Congress.
