It is the aim of the Trustees of the Art Gallery to gather into a small but good collection such works of art, painting, engravings, models, casts, photographs, etc., as will serve to illustrate the history and the principles of both ancient and modern art. The nucleus of such a collection has already been secured.

The Billings Library contains a choice collection of works on Art, supplemented and illustrated by about 2,000 photographs gathered by the Rev. L. G. Ware, and also by 2,000 casts from antique gems, formerly belonging to Lord Vernon. This collection was presented by Mrs. Billings, and is the largest of its class In the United States.
