Biographical or historical data
Natural Bridge Juvenile Correctional Center, located in Rockbridge County, was established on the site of 1930s Civilian Conservation Corps Camp. In the 1940s, the camp became part of the of the U.S. Bureau of Prisons and in 1964, the Virginia Dept. of Welfare and Institutions-Youth Services assumed operations of the facility as a placement for juveniles with lesser criminal offenses. During the 1970s, the facility was used as a "learning center" for youth before the courts. The Dept. of Juvenile Justice assumed control of the facility in 1996 and operated it as a "correctional center." Governor Tim Kaine closed the facility in late 2009 as part of an effort to close a $1.35 billion state budget gap.
