Thank you for running with us! We appreciate all the pictures and loved hearing about what freedom means to you. Stay tuned for updates regarding final race results.
Fort Monroe Visitor and Education Center
The Visitor Center will provide visitors with a point of arrival and orientation to the significant historical and recreational amenities of Fort Monroe. Through the adaptive reuse of an original Beaux Arts Style building, which was first built as a Library in 1909 by the Coast Artillery Schools, the Visitor Center will complement the existing Casemate Museum.
With visitor amenities, galleries, a gift shop, information desk, archives and multi-purpose space it will also feature exhibits that include the First Arrival story and the Contraband Camp at Fort Monroe, which housed escaped slaves through the period of the Civil War. The Fort Monroe Visitor and Education Center will open in 2020.LEARN MORE
