Thank you for your interest in The American Immigrant Wall of Honor. It is the only place in the United States where an individual can honor his or her family heritage at a National Monument. The Wall of Honor will soon migrate to the Foundation’s new website. While that work is underway you can still add a name or explore the database.

A Celebration of Dreams
The American Immigrant Wall of Honor is located at the Ellis Island National Museum of Immigration. Overlooking the Manhattan skyline, the Wall is situated just outside the Great Hall. If you’re arranging a trip to Ellis, look up your family’s name and panel number before your visit, and make sure to tour the Wall itself.
Add a Name to History
The American Immigrant Wall of Honor is open to immigrants of all eras, even up to the present day. Names are placed on the Wall through a minimum donation of $150 per name. These gifts of remembrance acknowledge your family’s legacy, and help preserve the story of the American immigration.
