Significance: The Charles G. Carpenter House is a key structure in the Cooper Street National Register Historic District. It was constructed in 1868, with Stephen D. Button of Philadelphia as architect. As a significant local example of Italianate style residential architecture, the Carpenter house contributes to the Coop Street Historic District's character as a physical manifestation of Camden's developmental history. In 1926, the house became the Murray Funeral Home.
