A centuries-old bridge once owned by Thomas Jefferson recently sold for $8.6  million.

Virginia’s ninety-foot long Natural Bridge, made of naturally formed limestone, is surrounded by 1,500 acres of property. The property includes 35 parcels, caverns, a 150-room hotel and cabins, according to the Associated Press.

The former owner, a real estate developer, received tax credits in the deal, which he sold for a fraction of its $40 million estimated value.

A conservation group bought the land and intends to make it a state park.

The 215-foot-high stone bridge is located south of Lexington.
