|This site created by the Federal Judicial Center presents nearly 600 images of historic federal courthouses and other buildings that have served as the meeting places of federal courts. These photographs were compiled from the collections of various federal repositories and agencies. They include an image of every meeting place of a federal court for which there was a photograph of acceptable quality.|
Captions indicate the date of the image and the name of the building at that time. Each entry then lists the date of the building’s completion; the supervising architect or, in the case of commissioned designs, the private architect; the dates that various federal courts used the building; the building’s fate or current use as of January 2007; and a citation indicating the source of the original photograph.
|In addition to the thumbnail and larger images, high-resolution files are provided for print use.
Note: Any use of these images should credit the original source, indicated in the citation beneath it, not the Federal Judicial Center. The Federal Judicial Center does not maintain a collection of original courthouse photographs.
