This would be excellent, the prices charged to get to the bridge were prohibitive at best while it was under private ownership. If it becomes a National Park my family might actually be able to visit Natural Bridge without breaking the bank.

This is thrilling! Natural Bridge is a national treasure, & should belong to the people.

I was totally surprised that Natural Bridge has been privately owned.
It is such a strong tourism draw and natural native area I think it is a genius idea to include it in the National Park Service. The risk is too great that unprotected a future owner might develop the surrounding site rather than protect it for future generations.

Funny, growing up I always thought it was a National Park, and I was surprised to learn it isn't. Seems like it would be a perfect fit.

Yep -- that's just what we need. More Real Estate removed from the tax base and additional expenses will be covered by the taxpayers to run the place.
Lets keep on expanding he role of gubment until everything is free ! What a country--------- full of dim witted, slow thinking retards that don't have a clue.

Natural wonders should be public and have minimal or no cost for the public to visit. Nothing more expensive than free TV, parks are cheap in comparison.
