The Hulon Society

The Story of Our First Philanthropists

Today, the intersection of Interstate 26 and Highway 378 boasts the sprawling campus of Lexington Medical Center. But before any buildings ever existed, the land belonged to a West Columbia woman named Lillian Hulon. Her kindness and generosity helped the dream of a hospital for Lexington County become a reality. The Hulon Society commemorates Harvey and Lillian Hulon who made the first planned gift to Lexington County Health Services District on August 10, 1966. They donated 22 acres, doing so with two simple conditions: first, the land had to be used for a hospital; second, she and her husband, Harvey Hulon, could live out their lives in the care of the hospital. The Hulons, who had no children, knew they would have a place that would take care of them in their retirement.

The story of the Hulons is significant because it established the precedent that Lexington Medical Center takes care of its community.

"With this legacy, the Hulons demonstrated the power of philanthropists to change the course of history and to touch countless lives through their foresight."
