In 1897, the immigration center on Ellis Island was destroyed in a fire just four years after it was originally opened. The fire destroyed not only the wooden buildings, but immigration records that dated back to 1855 were lost which pertained to roughly 1.5 million immigrants. Ellis Island immigration center was rebuilt and opened in 1900 and would be used to process immigrants until 1954. This 1897 nickel recalls the fire at Ellis Island.
