NATURAL BRIDGE, Va. (AP) -- A November auction has been set for a Virginia landmark and tourism attraction once owned by Thomas Jefferson is up for sale.

The privately owned Natural Bridge in Rockbridge County will be auctioned off on Nov. 14, along with Natural Bridge Caverns and a 150-room hotel.

The 1,600-acre property includes the 215-foot-high limestone arch that was carved naturally by the creek that runs under it.

Roanoke-based Woltz & Associates is marketing the tourist attraction that has drawn visitors for hundreds of years.

The property's primary owner is Washington, D.C., businessman Angelo Puglisi. There were no buyers in 2007, when the entire property was listed for sale for $39 million.

In June, the National Park Service agreed to study the possibility of turning Natural Bridge into a national park.
