Significance: The Coffren House, and adjacent Coffren Store, are significant as a surviving, rural general merchandise store and storekeepers dwelling complex. Once a familiar part of the rural landscape, the crossroads store complex is now rarely seen, with such architectural integrity. The house is a good example of a side-hall-and-double-parlor plan, a house type popular among the planter and merchant class in Prince George's County during the early to mid 19th-century. Its interior architectural details are in the Greek Revival style. Having been constructed in 1861, it is a later example of both this house type and stylistic detailing.
