Maymont was given to us by James and Sallie Dooley, who lived here from 1893 through 1925. They wanted Maymont to be preserved so that new generations could enjoy it as much as they did.

    The Japanese Gardens is where it's at, though be forewarned, in winter the waterfall is a water#fail. (I apologize for this awful joke.)

    Sprawling acreage dedicated to the wildlife of Virginia. Easy to get lost, but around the corner, could be the coveted Japanese Gardens.

    One of Richmond's favorite outdoor settings, Maymont offers walking paths, gardens and over 100 species of animals living on the grounds. Don't forget to bring quarters for the animal feed dispensers!

    Did you know? Maymont was built by millionaires James and Sallie Dooley in 1893, during the “Gilded Age” of the late 1880’s and early 1900’s. Today, the grounds and buildings remain largely unchanged. Read more
