Marlsgate Plantation (Scott)

Fourteen miles southeast of the city of Little Rock stands Marlsgate Plantation, a stately columned Greek Revival Mansion shaded by ancient oaks and a pecan grove overlooking the waters of Bearskin Lake. Majestically rising amid acres of rice, cotton and soybeans, Marlsgate is a refection of the opulent plantation era when cotton grew tall and there was a privileged class of wealth in the Arkansas delta. Home to David Paul Garner, Jr., Mr. and Mrs. David Garner, Sr. and his late grandmother, Grace Cupit Newman, Marlsgate Plantation is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
