The A. J. Stephens House, also known as the Carpenter House and the Lucas County Historical Society Museum, is a historic building located in Chariton, Iowa, United States. The two-story concrete block structure was built by Stephens as his family's home in 1908. He was a local contractor and the house was a showcase for masonry products and his skill in using them. The house is a larger version of the American Foursquare. On the front is a two-story Neoclassical style porch. The Lucas County Historical Society bought the house in 1966 for use as a museum. The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1987.
