The two-and-half-story house known as Marlsgate, located near Scott in Lonoke County, served as the primary residence of three generations of the Dortch family. Designed by Arkansas architect Charles L. Thompson, the house, which faces Bearskin Lake, was completed in 1904. The house was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979. It was sold by the Dortch family early in the twenty-first century and today is available to the public as a rental property available for gatherings.
