AIISF is working with the California State Parks on the renovation of the historic Immigration Station hospital into a Center for Pacific Coast Immigration that will tell the story of Pacific Coast immigration throughout United States history, and the public health hospital on the island, one of a very few remaining in the U.S. from the turn of the 20th century. AIISF has raised millions of dollars from state, federal, foundation, corporate and individual sources to preserve and renovate the historic buildings and obtain National Historic Site status for the Immigration Station.
