Description: Each new How It Was title gives a firsthand account of a famous building, site, or archaeological feature in the United States. Through the eyes of four or five people who lived in or had access to the site, readers will tour the grounds, move between floors, learn about jobs, and discover what life was like for the inhabitants.

Learn what it was like in 1920 on Ellis Island, the gateway of U.S. immigration in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. You'll meet a young Russian immigrant; an immigration service worker; an inspector who interviews prospective immigrants; a young boy who uses his Italian language skills to help a confused immigrant; and a German family leaving Ellis Island for New York City.
