National Park Service
IT HAS BEEN A MONUMENTAL YEAR
Ask anyone and they’ll tell you something magical happens when you cross over the bridge onto Fort Monroe. Nearly 200 people attended the very first National Park Service Ranger-led tour of the Fort back in March. Hundreds more enjoyed the living history programming done in collaboration with the Fort Monroe Authority throughout the summer. The park commemorated the 150th anniversary of the Civil War with a unique series of trading cards and the Casemate Museum is the “go to place” to get the cards, attend a special program or get the Fort Monroe National Monument passport stamp.
If you weren’t able to make it to Old Point Comfort, you’ve been missing out! Don’t deny yourself some time away, right in your own backyard. Whether you come weekly or only when you’ve got guests, there are things to see and do. Look for even more activity this second year, like the opportunity to give back by becoming part of the Fort Monroe Volunteer Corps.
The staff of Fort Monroe National Monument looks forward to your next visit!
