a) West Wing Felling Dates: Winter 1822/23
b) East Wing Felling Dates: Winter 1822/23
c) Center Section Felling Dates: After 1799
Historic Huntley was constructed as a summerhouse by Thomson F. Mason, part of a prominent Virginia family of landholders. The structure is situated on a hilltop with the basement being set into the bank of the hillside. The three-story center section is flanked by two-story wings, giving the building an H-plan layout.
Dendrochronological analysis has shown that the east and west wings were built from timbers felled in the winter of 1822/23 and that the center block was built sometime after 1799.
