HISTORIC BRATTONSVILLE PRESERVATION PROGRAM
1444 Brattonsville Road
McConnells, SC 29726

ARCHITECTURAL CONSERVATION INTERN | SUMMER 2017

The Culture and Heritage Museums of York County, South Carolina seeks qualified candidates for the 2017 summer field season at Historic Brattonsville, a National Register Historic District. A $2,000 stipend and housing will be offered to the selected candidate.  The participant may begin their eight-week internship as early as Monday, May 15, 2017.

Historic Brattonsville’s Preservation Program preserves and maintains over forty historic structures on the eight hundred-acre living history museum located in south central York County. The program participant will learn about the architectural history, building technology, and preservation issues of the Carolina Piedmont through the structures at Historic Brattonsville. The intern will receive training and hone skills in photo-documentation, field sketching, and condition assessment while documenting and assessing agrarian outbuildings. The participant will also have the opportunity to learn wood conservation treatments while repairing the exterior woodwork of the Colonel William Bratton House (c. 1766).

This is an excellent opportunity to get hands-on field experience in the field of historic preservation. The season will include trips to related institutions. Housing will be provided at Historic Brattonsville. It is strongly recommended that the participant have a personal vehicle for personal use during their residency. The successful candidate must supply their own computer and DSLR camera (or equivalent that can shoot in RAW) to complete assigned tasks as part of their internship. It is essential that the participant be able to work outdoors, be comfortable operating power tools, and not fear heights, as some work may require work on ladders or scaffolding. Students currently enrolled in graduate programs and/or recent graduates in historic
preservation or architectural conservation are strongly encouraged to apply.

Please email cover letter and resume by 11:00 AM EST on Monday, March 20, 2017 to:
