From 1892 to 1954, over 12 million immigrants entered USA through the portal of Ellis Island in New York Harbor
We are part of America's story
Ellis Island tells the story of the journey of millions of men, women and children from around the world who sought a new future on these shores.
Walking around these buildings we're not just talking about history-visitors are able to touch, feel, and understand in a way that connects them to the past. As we rebuild parts of Ellis Island, we are rebuilding its legacy and revitalizing living landmarks to a world gone by. Save Ellis Island is working to create a destination that echoes the beacon of hope that it once was for nearly twelve million immigrants and continues to be for the nearly two million visitors each year.
The Save Ellis Island website is made possible by a generous donation from Heidi Liebi Root in memory of her father Fred Liebi
