Statue of Libertycroppedsmall.jpg

Gain an appreciation for those who came before us, making the often long and difficult journey to America, where they were met by a whole new set of challenges. Sections on the history of Ellis Island, 19th century immigrant life in New York, how Wisconsin was settled, how immigrants reached America and why they left their homes, and much more. The exhibit also features a really nice collection of artifacts from the era.
