History

Fort Monroe, a part of Old Point Comfort located at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay, is quintessential to American history. Fort Monroe was constructed as an observation point during the War of 1812. This venue in particular was built in 1907 and housed the commanding generals of Fort Monroe. After its decommissioning in 2011, the place has become a gorgeous venue with an elegant garden and a general atmosphere that is rich with history, nostalgia and romance.
