It resembles Libertas, the Roman goddess of freedom, dressed in a robe and holding a torch in her right hand. French artist Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi sculpted the statue and donated it to the United States in 1886. The Statue of Liberty was a welcoming site to immigrants who came to America by boat, through Ellis Island.

The Island is located in Upper New York Bay and is a part of the Statue of Liberty National Monument. The two landmarks were added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1966.
