Step into the living history and legacy that began in 1850 with the creation of Marlsgate Plantation. The "wedding gift" of 1,100 acres to Nettie Steele upon her marriage to William Pinkney Dortch ignited a reign that stood over 100 years. David P. Garner and his family took the torch in 1983, and restored Marlsgate to resplendent glory and gracious entertaining. Today, Martha Ellen and Beau Talbot extend a cordial welcome to all guests who travel to the Arkansas Delta seeking a glimpse of the plantation culture of the nineteenth century which is preserved and maintained at Marlsgate Plantation. The house will be decorated for the holidays, adding to the splendor of Marlsgate. An afternoon tea of savory sandwiches, scones and sweets will follow the tour.
