Parked at Home with Ellis Island National Museum of Immigration

How far have you traveled for work—or for a dream?
For centuries, people have moved to the Blackstone Valley for new opportunities. Some of the immigrants seeking a new life in the Valley first passed through Ellis Island Immigration Center. During this program, rangers from Blackstone River Valley National Historical Park will discuss this process with a ranger from the Ellis Island National Museum of Immigration. Learn how immigration has changed over the past century and hear stories of local individuals who first came to the United States at Ellis Island.
