Charles William Cooper and his wife Elizabeth Pauline Demuth Cooper commissioned construction of the home in 1880. Designed in the Second Empire style, the residence features an Aesthetic Movement interior with opulent painted ceilings. The architect is unknown as the house was built without a mortgage.

The homes's restoration was featured in an episode of the HGTV television series, "If Walls Could Talk" as well as the PBS show, "On Q". Newspaper articles about the home have appeared in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette which were then distributed by the Scripps-Howard News Service to newspapers across the nation. A chapter about the house appears in the book, "Family Rootage", by Charles W. Cooper, the builder's grandson.

Today, this home is part of the historic Manchester neighborhood in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. [1]
