Louis Bacon Adds Historic Orton Plantation to Landholdings

A successful hedge fund manager and dedicated conservationist, Bacon’s 202,000 acres earned him No. 40 on the 2010 Land Report 100. Earlier this year he increased land portfolio when he acquired the historic Orton Plantation in North Carolina. Bacon is a direct descendant of Roger Moore, who built the original Orton residence in 1725 and the plantation home in 1735. Bacon also owns the sprawling 171,000-acre Trinchera Ranch in Colorado and Robins Island and Cow Neck Farm in New York.
