Spotlight Ellis Island

October 9, 2015


Colonial Capital Tours offer a diverse selection of student tours, educational tours and group tours to New York City. Our featured highlight this week is a visit to Ellis Island.

From 1892 to 1924, Ellis Island was America’s largest and most active immigration station, where over 12 million immigrants were processed. On average, the inspection process took approximately 3-7 hours. For the vast majority of immigrants, Ellis Island truly was an “Island of Hope” – the first stop on their way to new opportunities and experiences in America. For the rest, it became the “Island of Tears” – a place where families were separated and individuals were denied entry into the United States.
