Consultations Completed Consultations Seeking Comment
Jefferson Davis Memorial Removal
REQUEST FOR PUBLIC COMMENTS
The public is invited to make comments on the removal of the Jefferson Davis Memorial Park/Arch. On April 16, 2019, the Fort Monroe Authority received a formal request from Governor Northam for the removal of the Jefferson Davis Memorial Arch as well as references to Jefferson Davis Memorial Park.
The park was designated in honor of Jefferson Davis in 1955, and has also been referred to as a memorial park. A 50-foot wrought iron archway gifted from the United Daughters of the Confederacy marks the entry into the park above the south bastion of the Fort.
Fort Monroe Authority is requesting consultation with the public with regards to the potential effects on historic properties.
