Housed in a 1902 Victorian dwelling, this site was the former family homes of Dr. John Frank Kinney and his son, Dr. Prentiss M. Kinney.

Donated to the Marlborough Historical Society in 1997, the museum features many exhibits including a Victorian parlor, Indian artifacts, farm implements and tools, military, textiles, and children’s toy room. A hollowed-out gum log which was the bed of Mason Lee, Marlboro County’s most eccentric citizen.

The Medical Museum, located in the former 1902 offices of Dr. John Frank Kinney and son, Dr. Prentiss M. Kinney, sits directly in front of the Marlboro County Historical Museum. The facility has an examination room dating back to the 1920s and another for the 1950s. An old apothecary desk, amputation kit, sterilization machine, as well as numerous medical instruments, and an x-ray machine from the 1940s make for an interesting visit.
