 FY 2000 Historic Preservation Fund Grants


 Angel Island Immigration Station, Tiburon Award amount: $ 500,000

 A National Historic Landmark, Angel Island Immigration Station served as the primary West Coast port of entry for immigrants to the United States. Chinese immigrants detained at the station carved poetry into the walls of the barracks, leaving an invaluable historical record of the Pacific immigration experience. Long-term deterioration and water damage threaten the structural integrity of the buildings. Many of the inscriptions have weathered to the point that they are barely legible. Funding will enable stabilization of the buildings and conservation work to ensure that the poetry is not lost.

 Laundry and Hospital Outbuilding at Ellis Island, Statue of Liberty National Monument Award amount: $ 500,000

 Ellis Island was the country's principal immigration station from 1892 to 1954. The Laundry and Hospital Outbuilding, part of the first major integrated hospital complex of the early 20th century, was designed by James Knox Taylor, Architect of the Department of the Treasury Department. Vacant for decades, the building is in extremely poor condition with a collapsed roof and some major structural damage. Funds will support restoration of the roof and masonry and replacement of windows and doors.
