CASTLE GARDEN 1830-1892

 

Prior to 1890, the individual states (rather than the Federal government) regulated immigration into the United States. Castle Garden in the Battery (originally known as Castle Clinton) served as the New York State immigration station from 1830 to 1892 and approximately ten million immigrants, mostly from Northern and Western Europe, passed through its doors.

The list below includes those currently published online on the Castle Garden website plus additional entries from New York passenger lists for the period 1820-1892 published online by Ancestry.com. These include both Castle Garden and the Barge Office.
