Benjamin Cooper House - 1901

The Second Convention Hall postcards from 1900s-1910s. The building was then known as the Third Regiment Armory.

Convention Hall

Camden has had two buildings known as Convention Hall, which can get a bit confusing, and the issue gets even more confusing when you add the fact that Camden had four different armories in the years between 1880 and 1960, and one of them was also called Convention Hall! It doesn’t help either that Convention Hall was also often referred to as the Civic Center during the 1920s, 1930s, 1940s, and early 1950s.
