Fort Monroe National Monument Designation Gains Steam
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com - National Park Service, National Trust for Historic Preservation, Fort Monroe, National Monument
Contributed By: National Trust's Public Policy Department and Center for State and Local Policy

On July 19, the National Park Service (NPS) held two meetings to get public comment on the potential national monument designation of historic Fort Monroe in Hampton, VA as an addition to the National Park System.  The NPS also took public comment through email, letter and web forms for those who could not attend the meeting through Tuesday, July 26.  Over 750 people attended the meetings at the Hampton Convention Center in support of a national monument designation for Fort Monroe.  Not a single attendee at either of the meetings had a negative comment about a designation and inclusion of Fort Monroe in the National Park System and the overwhelming sentiment among attendees was to secure Fort Monroe's status as a national monument and a National Park Service unit by the most efficient means.   In addition, the National Trust collected over 5,300 signatures with 500 additional comments on its open letter to the President Obama to designate Fort Monroe as a national monument.
