Ellis Island Photo Collage

The story of Ellis Island is the story of people - millions of immigrants - who passed through its halls seeking new opportunities and freedoms. Join us as we tell the story of this place and these people through our photo collections. These images - some historic, some more recent - show us Ellis Island's history, even up to the present-day.
