Fort Monroe Changes

The military base at Fort Monroe is scheduled to close in 2011. The Commonwealth of Virginia will regain the land and is working on plans to preserve recreational opportunities while considering commercial opportunities. See the APVA press release and the Daily Press story. for details.

On this sign, the fort is drawn in at the lower left. The other white areas (except for the legend at the top left) represent water. The ships on the right represent the USS Monitor and the CSS Virginia (Merrimack), which battled near there in 1862.
