ROANOKE, Va. —

A Virginia landmark and tourism attraction once owned by Thomas Jefferson is up for sale.

The privately owned Natural Bridge, north of Roanoke, is being put on the market, along with Natural Bridge Caverns and a 150-room hotel.

Roanoke-based Woltz & Associates is marketing the tourist attraction.

Woltz & Associates owner and president Jim Woltz tells The Roanoke Times (http://bit.ly/Z2ioIT) the 1,600-acre property will be divided and listed by tracts. Potential buyers could purchase only the 215-foot-high limestone arch, or every tract.

The property's primary owner is Washington, D.C., businessman Angelo Puglisi. Woltz says Puglisi wants the bridge to remain open to the public.

Woltz would like to see the bridge become a national or state park. He plans to contact federal and state officials about purchasing it.
