Honoring Immigrant Ancestors on the new Angel Island wall

AIISF and Angel Island State Park have some exciting news for the many people who were on the waiting list for the Immigrant Heritage Wall.  We are making room for you by constructing a new wall adjacent to the current Immigrant Heritage Wall. The wall extension will be 26 feet long by 3 feet high and have room for 102 plaques.  The majority of the plaques will be at the 7” high x 6” wide configuration and each plaque will cost $2,500.  Larger size plaques in the 14 ¼” high x 12 1/4” wide will also be available for $5,000.  The deadline for submitting your contribution will be May 30, 2012. We plan to construct this wall and hold a dedication ceremony in September 2012.

Immigration Station Hospital Update

I'm happy to report that the Angel Island Immigration Station Hospital is on the mend.  It has looked rather sickly in recent years as water has poured through the building from a leaky roof and busted gutters.  Parts of the second floor have buckled and were substantially weakened.  Over the past few months, work crews supervised by West Bay Builders and California State Parks managers have cleared out much of the hazardous materials, removed decades of debris, and most importantly shored up the foundation of the 101 year old building.
