We are a "Nation of Immigrants," and from 1892 until as late as 1954, most immigrants to this country had to be processed through Ellis Island, in New York Harbor. This National Park Service-created website is the official site for Ellis Island, officially now part of the Statue of Liberty National Monument. It provides information about visiting Ellis Island, an excellent teacher section, especially valuable if planning a class trip there, and offers other information on the topic of immigration. Students may download a PDF about Ellis Island and the immigration experience.
