HIPR Maymester Field School restores porch on Smith House, one of Brunswick’s older structures.
BRUNSWICK | When University of Georgia Professor Mark Reinberger talks about class materials for his “Maymester,” it’s usually building materials.
Reinberger brings down a group of about a dozen students on the hot end of spring each year for a two-week, hands-on class called the Preservation Field School at the Georgia Coast.
For the second consecutive year, the students from the College of Environment & Design have worked on the 150-year-old Smith House in Brunswick’s historic south end.
Asked what he has planned for next year, Reinberger said he’ll be back at the Smith House.
