Couchwood Today

Couchwood today is a lake-house retreat for Harvey C. Couch’s descendents. The family uses the house for vacations because of its great activities and proximity to Little Rock. Every 4th of July the Couch family can be seen coming together for a family reunion. Below is a video showcasing Elizabeth Couch-Dober at Couchwood speaking on her grandfather, Harvey Couch, founder in 1913 of Arkansas Light and Power Company, which would eventually become Entergy. She speaks of how the lakes and dams were named, what kind of man Harvey Couch was, why there’s a rail car on the property, and how the family honors the legacy of “Daddy Couch.”
