In this time it processed over 20 million immigrants. It is now a museum. At lower centre is Liberty Island, on which the Statue of Liberty stands. This statue was given as a gift by France to celebrate the 1876 centenary of US independence. The statue was only completed and unveiled in 1886, however.
