The American symbol of freedom, the Statue of Liberty, is celebrating an anniversary of sorts this week.

Lady Liberty made her way into New York’s port June 17, 1885, after a grueling monthlong trip from France, packed into 214 crates.

The gift from the French was formally dedicated in October 1886 and designated a national monument in 1924.

She’s pretty famous, but we’ve found a few tidbits that aren’t likely common knowledge.
