GREAT NATURAL BRIDGE.
Justice Marshall Called It "God's
Greatest Miracle In Stone."
The great Natural bridge, which Is
one of the natural wonders of the
United States, overlooks the James
river valley, being on the western
slope of the Blue mountains. It Is
just about the center of the state. It
approaches Niagara In grandeur and
exceeds it In height and awful mys
tery. It Is a single block of lime
stone, with many shades of color.
The walls are smooth, as if cut with
chisels, and there Is no sign of dis
placement The visitor follows a tumbling cas
cade down a deep fissure In the moun
tain under some of the largest arbor
vitae trees In the world and, turning
down a line of steps cut Into the preci

bridge far above him.
Washington when a .purveyor for
Lord Fairfax visited the Natural bridge
and carved his name, where It may
still be seen. The original bridge tract
was granted by King George III. to
Thomas Jefferson in 1774. After be
was president Jefferson visited the
place, surveyed it and made the map
with his own bands. Jefferson spoke
of the place as "a famous place that
will draw the attention of the world."
Chief Justice Marshall wrote of the
bridge as "God's greatest miracle In
stone." Henry Clay wrote of "the
bridge not made with hands that spans
a river, carries a highway and makes
two mountains one."
