Biographical or historical data
The Natural Bridge Juvenile Justice Correctional Center was established in 1964 on the site of a 1930s Civilian Conservation Corps Camp in the Shenandoah Mountains of Rockbridge County. The Dept. of Welfare & Institutions-Youth Services took over the facility from the U.S. Bureau of Prisons as a "learning center" for juveniles with lesser criminal offenses. The facility operated as a "correctional center" from 1996 until its closing die to budget cuts in 2009.
