Lake Property
Liberty Hills Farms -- the heart-shaped property on Lake Wateree at the center of the picture -- will no longer be developed and will be preserved in perpetuity. The S.C. Department of Natural Resources will ultimately obtain the property and add it to its Wildlife Management Area program. - photo by Photo courtesy of Carolina Sports Inc.
A more than 10-year-old dream of State Sen. Vincent Sheheen’s is coming true. Greenwood Communities and Resorts Inc., recently sold more than 3,500 acres of land known as Liberty Hill Farms to a Maryland non-profit conservation group for $9.187 million. The Conservation Fund, founded in 1985 and actually headquartered in Arlington, Va., purchased the property Nov. 20, according to a deed recorded at the Kershaw County Courthouse on Dec. 10.
