The North Carolina Court of Appeals was established by the General Assembly in 1967. A history of the Court would not be complete, however, without mentioning events that occurred before 1967, following the admonition that the past is prologue.

Numerous biographies, portrait presentations, and histories are scattered throughout the more than 360 volumes of the North Carolina Reports of the Supreme Court.

The North Carolina Supreme Court Historical Society is an organization dedicated to the preservation of North Carolina's rich legal heritage.
