Jim Woltz has a bridge in Rockbridge County he wants to sell you — Natural Bridge. Woltz’s company, Roanoke-based Woltz & Associates, has been retained to market the Virginia landmark and tourist attraction, along with an accompanying 150-room hotel, Natural Bridge Caverns and 1,600 acres. “A lot of people probably don’t even realize the Natural Bridge, one of the natural wonders of the world, is privately owned, and it is a great honor to be entrusted with this treasure,” Woltz was quoted as saying in a news release. Natural Bridge, the 500-million-year-old, 23-story limestone arch surveyed by George Washington and once owned by Thomas Jefferson, is privately owned. Principal owner Angelo Puglisi is putting the attraction on the market just six years after first trying to sell the property before the economy crashed. Puglisi, who lives in Washington, D.C., has owned the property for nearly 25 years. The asking price for the bridge and property was not immediately known.
