America's 250th

Benjamin Cooper House

The Benjamin Cooper House is now the American Revolution Museum of Southern New Jersey. 

Benjamin Cooper House

This national treasure is listed by the New Jersey Preservation Alliance as one of the most important endangered buildings in the state. Built in 1734 by the grandson of William Cooper, the founder of what is now Camden and friend of William Penn, the Benjamin Cooper House was controlled and used by the British on occasion in 1777-78 to launch an attack on Fort Mercer, protect their foraging operations, and support their evacuation of Philadelphia.
