Maymont: One Wonder-Filled Place... The story of Maymont began in 1893, when a wealthy Richmond couple, James and Sallie Dooley, completed their elaborate Gilded Age estate on a site high above the James River.
Upon their deaths and according to their wishes, Maymont—including its architectural complex, the splendid, 100-acre landscape, and a collection of exquisite furnishings—was left to the people of Richmond. Over the next 75 years, additional attractions were thoughtfully added, culminating in a one-of-a-kind showplace.
Maymont has broad appeal to a general audience, yet enthusiasts representing a great variety of interests seek out the extraordinary and diverse facets of Maymont. We are sure that there is something special at Maymont for you. In fact, it's likely that once you see Maymont, you'll feel compelled to return again and again.
