Inscription.  A Self-Contained Facility on 13 Acres
Angel Island was modeled after the Ellis Island Immigration Station in New York Harbor. The hub of operations was the Administration Building. It housed intake and interrogation facilities, staff offices, a records vault, dormitories and dining rooms. Flanking it on the hillsides were the Detention Barracks, Hospital, Central Heating Plant and employee cottages. When the Administration Building burned in 1940, the station was closed and operations were moved to San Francisco.

"In 1905, construction of the Immigration Station began in the area then known as North Garrison. Surrounded by public controversy from its inception, the station was finally put into partial operation in 1910. It was designed to process Chinese immigrants whose entry was restricted by the Chinese Exclusion Law of 1882."
