News Display: Miss Liberty Arrives

A gift from France to America, the Statue of Liberty arrived safely in New York Harbor on June 17, 1885. Miss Liberty was designed by Frederic-Auguste Bartholdi and shipped in more than 200 cases that contained 350 copper and iron pieces that were assembled over the following year. This famous landmark symbolized the American Revolution and the friendship between the United States and France.

Stories will depict the history of Miss Liberty, including its closures and repairs over the years.
