The Rawl-Couch House is a beautiful and historic Queen Anne style house in Batesburg-Leesville, South Carolina. It was built in 1893 as a Methodist school. In 1908, it was enlarged by John Jacob Rawl, with the help of his son, David, for his daughter in law, Anne Rawl. Anne was widowed when the construction started, as her husband, Ed Rawl, son to John Jacob, died in an accident in his father?s factory in Florida.

In the 1930s, it was purchased by D.E. Couch who used the Rawl-Couch House as a family home. For some time, it also served as a boarding house for young women. In the 1980s, it was updated and renovated, and was then entered to the National Register of Historic Places.
