Annie was the first immigrant to the U.S.A to pass through the Ellis Island facility and at the age of 15 together with her brothers Phillip and Anthony boarded the steamship Nevada on 1 January 1892.

Impressive statue is just outside the Heritage Centre, but full story of Annie and her younger brothers is inside as an exhibit.
