Immigration Station - Angel Island
In 1905, construction of an Immigration Station began in the area known as China Cove. The station began operation in 1910. Anticipated as the "Ellis Island of the West", it was designed to handle a flood of European immigrants. Instead, the majority of the immigrants to America were from Asia. Like their European counterparts entering at New York City, they hoped to escape the economic or political hardships of their homelands. On Ellis Island, immigrants were processed through within hours or days; on Angel Island, they spent weeks or months.
