WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama this morning designated former Army base Fort Monroe as a national monument, saying the move will preserve an important piece of American history and help bring new jobs to Virginia.

About 570 acres of the base, closed last month, would be set aside in a historic landmark district. Plans call for the preservation of the majority of the buildings left on the base and related improvements to create a full national park there, the 22nd in Virginia and 396th nationwide.
