About Fountain Place
The origins of Fountain Place started in the 1960s as a Master Planned Community. Mr. Cooper constructed this building as his personal residence. Thanks to the efforts of the Spring River Village, Inc. organization and a coalition of over 50 churches, Fountain Place has been transformed into a wonderful Christian Independent Living Campus.
What Makes Us Special
We offer a "Move In First" program which offers reduced rental until the house sells then a settlement and increase to regular rental price. Fountain Place is the former home of John A. Cooper, Sr. and his wife Mildred Borum Cooper, who developed Cherokee Village, Bella Vista and Hot Springs Village. They were the first planned retirement communities in the United States. The facility sits on the 22 acre wooded estate overlooking Lake Thunderbird in Cherokee Village, just 2 minutes from our Village Town Center which houses the Post Office, Bank, City Hall, Police Department and various shops. Cherokee Village boasts 7 lakes and two 18 hole championship caliber golf courses! It is as private as you want to be!
