Once owned by Thomas Jefferson, Natural Bridge Park and Historic Hotel is a “must see” monumental National Historic Landmark. Deemed the “Bridge of God” by the Monacan Indians who discovered it, traversed by Civil War soldiers, and once surveyed by a young George Washington, the Bridge has a rich spiritual history dating back hundreds of years.  The Hotel is currently undergoing a major renovation which is expected to be completed by Spring 2015. The Natural Bridge Caverns have been opened to the public since 1977. Visitors enjoying the Natural Bridge Caverns tour descend more than 34 stories deep into the earth. The tour is highlighted by Mirror Lake, the Waterfall Room, the Canyon Room, the Colossal Dome Room, and the Wishing Well Room.
