LIVE, WORK, PLAY AND LEARN AT FORT MONROE
The area known today as Fort Monroe was originally explored by Captain Christopher Newport in 1607. Named in honor of President James Monroe, Fort Monroe is the largest stone fort built in the United States. Construction began in 1819 and was completed in 1834.
In the mid-1990s, the federal government decided to close Fort Monroe as a military base. On November 1, 2011, President Barack Obama signed an executive order granting national monument status to Fort Monroe. Today, Fort Monroe is open to the public and is currently in the master land-planning process.
Fort Monroe’s myriad of historic buildings will be preserved and adaptively reused with the help of federal and state tax incentives – creating opportunities for developers.
