Anna Heubeck Knipp was president of the very first graduating class of Goucher in 1892, a class of only five. She was a founder and president of the Alumnae Association, and she served as a member of the college's Board of Trustees for many years. She also co-authored the history of the college with Professor Thaddeus Thomas, which she finished after his death. Heubeck Hall, the second residence hall built, was dedicated in her honor on May 6, 1957, and she was the first guest at the first meal in that hall. She died in 1966 at age 95.

Heubeck Hall houses one of the newer dining halls on campus. Across from the dining hall is a lounge that hosts an array of events and club meetings year-round. On the first floor is the campus health and counseling center, which is open Monday to Friday, from 9:00am-5:00pm. Aside from Jeffery House, which is a first-year community, the majority of students living in Heubeck's other houses are upperclassmen. All of the rooms in Heubeck have central air.
