The Society is conducting an active acquisitions program, which has substantially contributed to the completion of the Court's permanent collection of busts and portraits, as well as period furnishings, private papers, and other artifacts and memorabilia relating to the Court's history. These materials are incorporated into exhibitions prepared by the Court Curator's Office for the benefit of the Court's one million annual visitors.


The staff of the Supreme Court Historical Society does not appraise artifacts or other materials and cannot offer monetary evaluations.  Certified appraisers provide these services for a fee.
