A gift given to the community by James and Sallie Dooley (residents of the 100-acre estate from 1893-1925), Maymont is part historic house, part extensive gardens and part natural habitat for more than 100 species of Virginia wildlife. With 12,000 square feet of Gilded Age design, elegant outbuildings and late 19th and early 20th century architecture, Maymont offers an unblemished glimpse into the lives of Richmond's cosmopolitan millionaires. Tour the opulent mansion, stroll through the equally grand gardens or visit the nature center, wildlife exhibits or children's farm.
