HAYLEYVILLE, Ala. (AP) — A tourist site in northern Alabama that is billed as having the longest natural rock bridge east of the Rocky Mountains is up for sale. 

The Daily Mountain Eagle reports that the family that has owned Natural Bridge Park for 40 years is asking $3 million for the 149-acre site about 70 miles northwest of Birmingham. The park's bridge is a roughly 150-foot-long rock arch that rises more than 60 feet high.

State Rep. Tracy Estes said he has started the process of seeing whether the state has any interest in bringing the site into the state parks system.
