A gift from France to the United States, the Statue of Liberty was first revealed in 1886.
Designed by Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi and built by Gustave Eiffel, (yep, the same man who built Paris's Eiffel Tower,) Lady Liberty is the national symbol of hope for many who entered the states as immigrants, via neighboring Ellis Island.
Now, according to CNN, the statue's 3,600-pound torch will be placed in the new Statue of Liberty Museum, which opens on Liberty Island in May 2019.
The original copper torch was actually replaced by a replica in 1984, after being weathered.
CNN adds, "The 'inspiration gallery,' which is where the torch will live, will have floor-to-ceiling glass windows looking out at Lower Manhattan, including the World Trade Center."
