For more information about "Park in a Pack" (an on-loan program for educators to use in the classroom), which is primarily about Ellis Island, please visit the Ellis Island Park in a Pack page.
Did You Know?
The French ship "Isere" transported the Statue of Liberty's 300 copper pieces packed in 214 crates to America. Although the ship nearly sank in rough seas, it arrived in New York on June 17, 1885. The Statue's parts remained unassembled for nearly a year until the pedestal was completed in 1886.
