    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
