In the 1990s, Robert Lee Scarborough assembled the Scarborough Hamer Collection of 19th and 20th century decorative arts to assist in the interpretation of the social, political, and economic history of lower Richland and Sumter Counties.  The Scarborough Hamer Foundation was established to manage and ensure the well-being of the Collection.

While artifacts in the Collection date from 1790 to the 1930s, the majority of the items were created between 1850 and 1900.  The Collection contains many of the furnishing styles popular during the Victorian period, including Eastlake, Federal, Eclectic, Rococo Revival, Renaissance Revival, and American Empire.  Other items in the Collection include glass, porcelain, housewares, linens, art, and books.
