History of Immigrants
Ellis Island is an island that is located in upper New York Bay in the port of New York and New Jersey. It was known as the gateway for millions of immigrants to the United States. Ellis Island came to be known as our nation's busiest immigrant inspection station from 1892 to 1954.
