Legend has it...

In 1750, a young George Washington surveyed the Natural Bridge site for Lord Fairfax. He carved his initials 20 feet up the wall where it remains today.

And one more random fact about Natural Bridge.

In 1774, Thomas Jefferson purchased 157 acres of land including the Natural Bridge from King George III of England for 20 shillings (About $2 back then). It has remained privately owned since.
