BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) – The owner of the historic Orton Plantation in Brunswick County was recently profiled in Forbes Magazine.
Louis Bacon has remained quiet in his efforts, which according to the article, go well beyond his purchase of Orton Plantation in 2010. One of the world's leading conservationists, the billionaire is a descendant of the original owners of the site.
Orton plantation will be under extensive restoration until 2014 when access would resume on a limited basis through prearranged visits with educational and historic groups.
