History of the Natural Bridge
Thomas Jefferson once owned the Natural Bridge; he purchased 157 acres of land that included the Natural Bridge VA from King George III of England in 1774, paying only 20 shillings. After buying the land, Jefferson built a two room log cabin with one room reserved for his guests, and he began to visit the Natural Bridge VA as a Virginia Getaway. It is believed that before that time, George Washington visited the Natural Bridge Virginia in 1750 as a surveyor on business for Lord Thomas Fairfax, the 6th Lord Fairfax of Cameron; many believed the initials GW that are carved on the bridge wall were the initials of the first president of the United States.
