New Fort Monroe National Monument Superintendent Named

HAMPTON—Eola Dance, who has been acting superintendent of Fort Monroe National Monument, has been named the official superintendent, the National Park Service recently announced. She officially took over the role on October 10.

“I welcome this opportunity to join the Commonwealth of Virginia, the City of Hampton, and our community of partners in documenting and presenting new and dynamic scholarships, using the best science to preserve the natural and cultural landscape of Fort Monroe, and positioning communities to tell their own stories,” Dance said.

Dance has served in many roles during her 20-year career in the National Park Service and brings an energy and passion for the untold stories at Fort Monroe.
