  • Fun Facts: The Statue of Liberty's official dedication ceremony took place on October 28th 1886. This beautiful statue weighs an impressive 450,000 pounds (225 tons). During the restoration the new torch was carefully covered with thin sheets of 24K gold (completed in 1986). The Statue of Liberty is covered in copper which is 3/32 of an inch thick. The seven rays on the crown represents each of the seven continents. They measure up to 9 feet each. Each of the statues sandals are 25 feet long. The Statue is 305 ft 6 in. from the base of the pedestal foundation to the top of the torch. French sculptor Auguste Bartholdi created the statue with many workers alongside. They worked ten hour days, seven days a week for 9 years. This monument was shipped to America and placed upon Bedloe Island which today is known as Liberty Island. It is only accesible by ferry boat.
