[ARCHIVED] Fort Monroe’s New Visitor Center - Wednesday, July 18, noon-1 pm


For at least 400 years, the point of land known as Old Point Comfort that now includes Fort Monroe has served as the key defensive site at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay. Beginning with Native American’s use years before the settling of Jamestown to its most recent mission as the US Army’s Headquarters for Training and Doctrine Command until 2011, Old Point Comfort and Fort Monroe has influenced all aspects of our nation’s history.

In August 2019, in time for commemoration of the arrival of the first Africans at Point Comfort in 1619, Fort Monroe will get a state-of-the-art visitor center. Hear about plans for this impressive facility from Casemate Museum director Robin Reed.

This talk is free and open to the public.
Bring a bag lunch, we’ll have free dessert for you!
