Statue of Liberty's Original Torch Moved to New Liberty Island Museum Site

The Statue of Liberty's original torch has been moved from the base of the statue to its new home in a museum that will open next year. The torch was replaced with a replica in the 1980s. Visitors watched on Thursday as the base and the flame of the 3,600-pound torch were trucked slowly and carefully to the museum construction site about 100 yards from the statue.
