GEORGE WASHINGTON & THOMAS JEFFERSON LINKS TO NATURAL BRIDGE:

Some believe George Washington came to the site in 1750 as a young surveyor on behalf of Thomas Fairfax, 6th Lord Fairfax of Cameron.[4] To support claims that Washington surveyed the area, some tour guides claim the initials “G.W.” on the wall of the bridge, 23 ft. up, were carved by the future president. Legend also has it that George Washington threw a rock from the bottom of Cedar Creek over the bridge. In 1927, a large stone was found, also engraved “G.W.” and bearing a surveyor’s cross, which historians accepted as proof that he indeed surveyed the bridge.[5]


Thomas Jefferson purchased the bridge (@ Natural Bridge, VA) for $2.40 from King George III. He also built a cabin there while he was president.
