Five Fun Facts About the Statue of Liberty

July 16, 2014 4:03 pm

It’s one of the most recognizable landmarks in our country, but how much do you really know about the Statue of Liberty? These interesting facts will teach you about the history, construction, and purpose of Lady Liberty.

The Statue of Liberty was a gift from France.
The French gifted this massive statue to the United States to celebrate 100 years of American independence and Franco-American kinship.

Many parts of the statue have deeper meanings.
For example, the seven rays on her crown represent the seven continents in the world. The tablet in her hand reads “July 4, 1776” in Roman numerals, and the broken shackles at her feet represent freedom from tyranny.

The statue measures 305 feet high from the base to the tip of the crown.
The woman herself measures 111 feet from her feet to the tip of her crown, and only her face is eight feet tall.

The statue is covered in 3/32-inch thick copper.
The copper’s natural weathering process gives the statue its unique green color. In 1986, the torch was restored and covered in 24 karat gold.

Visitors are able to climb to the top of the statue.
If you visit the Statue of Liberty, you can climb all the way to the top of the crown and peer out over New York City from the windows surrounding it. About five million people visit the statue per year.
