Established on the site of a Civilian Conservation Corp Camp operated by the U.S. Agriculture (DOA), Natural Bridge Juvenile Correctional Center (NBJCC) occupies approximately 100 acres of the Jefferson Natural Forest in southern Rockbridge County, six miles east of the Natural Bridge; one of the seven natural wonders of the world. Furthermore NBJCC is situated in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, 50 miles south of the city of Staunton, 45 miles north of the city of Roanoke, and 35 miles west of the city of Lynchburg.
In late 2009, the Virginia Department of Juvenile Justice was mandated by severe state budget restrictions to close NBJCC. Residents were moved to other department facilities.
NBJCC was vacated on October 10, 2009. The facility has been placed in "mothball" status.
