In 1607, Captain Christopher Newport sailed to a “point of land where they found a channel and sounded twelve fathoms.” This put them in such good comfort that they named the point “Cape Comfort.” The name was later changed to Old Point Comfort.

During the initial exploration by the mission headed by Captain Christopher Newport in the earliest days of the Colony of Virginia, the site was identified as a strategic defensive location. Old Point Comfort Marina in Hampton, Virginia offers a multitude of services, good protection, and quiet charm, coupled with a rich historic flavor, and is easily reached by vessels arriving from the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.

The historic Fort Monroe (also known as Fortress Monroe and Fort Monroe National Monument) was a military installation in Old Point Comfort, at the southern tip of the Virginia Peninsula. Along with Fort Wool, Fort Monroe guarded the navigational channel between the Chesapeake Bay and Hampton Roads. Completely surrounded by a moat, the six-sided stone fort was the last remaining fort in the United States still active as an Army post when it was decommissioned in 2011.
