Louis Moore Bacon’s plantation

February 01, 2011   Lawrence Delevingne

Louis Moore Bacon, founder of Moore Capital Management, returned to his North Carolina roots by purchasing the 8,300-acre Orton Plantation in Brunswick County for a reported $45 million. The billionaire money manager is a direct descendant of Roger Moore, who built the estate in 1725, according to the Wilmington Star News (another family owned the property beginning in 1884). Bacon, a conservationist, is originally from Raleigh. He already owns a 171,400-acre ranch in Colorado, the 435-acre Robins Island off New York’s Long Island, the 540-acre Cow Neck Farm near Southampton on Long Island and property in the Bahamas, according to the Denver Post.
