Huckleberry Hall was sampled as part of a dendrochronological project funded by the Maryland Historical Trust targeting Germanic buildings in Maryland. Huckleberry Hall is a two-and-a-half story, four-bay stone structure with a two-bay addition added to the south end.


Dendrochronological analysis has shown that the original log structure was built with one timber felled in the spring of 1792 and two timbers felled after the summer of 1792.
