Located in Camden’s Downtown, with easy access to the Waterfront, the historic Cooper Grant neighborhood features a diverse resident population and homes in a rich array of architectural styles. Campuses of Rutgers University, Rowan University, and Camden County College thrive along Cooper Street, while professional baseball is played at Campbell’s Field.
Cooper Grant is within walking distance of several RiverLINE, PATCO, and NJTransit bus stations that offer convenient transit to Trenton and Philadelphia.
The Cooper Grant neighborhood was developed between 1800 and 1945 through the efforts of three prominent families: the Sharps, the Coopers and the Bairds. These families lived here, built their great homes here, and served as captains of nineteenth century industrial Camden.
The neighborhood was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1987 and designated by the city of Camden as a historic district in the same year.
