The American Immigrant Wall of Honor, unveiled in 1990, celebrates the immigrant experience – individuals who arrived by ship, by plane, and by foot; those who endured forced migration from slavery; the country’s earliest settlers; and the land’s indigenous peoples.
Thanks to our generous supporters, the Wall of Honor has been a tremendous success; so much so that existing panels are officially full!
We thank you for being part of this monumental project, which has helped the Foundation fulfill our mission to preserve and restore the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.
Stay tuned for updates on our next project to honor your family history!
