The Statue of Liberty is one of the most famous symbols of America. For people who came to America from other countries in the early 1900s, "Lady Liberty" meant the start of a new life where anything was possible. 


The Statue of Liberty is 305 feet tall and stands on Ellis Island in New York City. When she was built, she was the tallest structure in New York City. Today, there are hundreds of taller buildings. The Statue of Liberty is made of copper – the same metal that was once used to make pennies. She looks green, however, because copper turns green over time when it is outside. She is honored on U.S. coins and countless postage stamps. 


Did you know that the Statue of Liberty was a gift to the United States from France for its 100th birthday?
