Ellis IslandThe Highlights
Ellis Island served as the first stop and gateway to America for over twelve million immigrants during its years of operation from the early to middle twentieth century. The building currently houses a fascinating Museum of Immigration and is itself a crucial historical landmark. Tens of millions of current American citizens have ancestors who passed through Ellis Island from across the globe seeking a better life, making the island a particularly emotional and meaningful site. Ellis Island is offiicially a component of the Statue Of Liberty Monument and is imbued with the same messages of American freedom and oppurtunity.
