HAMPTON, Va. (AP) - The Army plans to immediately transfer more than half of the land at Fort Monroe to the state of Virginia.
The military deactivated the post in 2011 and a national monument was created on portions of the property.
Fort Monroe was the third-oldest U.S. Army post in continuous active service until it closed.
The Army recently notified Virginia officials that it intends to transfer 313 acres of the 565-acre Hampton fort right away, although there are issues that still need to be resolved.
Fort Monroe Authority Executive Director Glenn Oder tells The Virginian-Pilot that among those issues are the boundaries of the land being transferred.
