According to Ann Colley, a public relations spokesman for Orton owner Louis Moore Bacon, the building is an old tenant house dating from the early 1900s. It was discovered in heavy underbrush during forestry work on the property and was moved to the roadside and put up on cinderblocks for temporary safekeeping.

Plans are not complete, but Colley said the old house might be used as a maintenance building or support structure for Orton’s  developing forestry program.


Will Orton Plantation reopen to the general public? If so, when?
