Maymont was given to all of us by James Henry 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. It’s a special place where the man-made elegance of art and architecture is surrounded by the natural beauty of plants, animals, water and paths. Whether strolling through the gardens, touring the mansion, watching river otters play, petting a goat or picnicking on the lawn, Maymont is a gift of 100 acres given for all to enjoy. Explore the Maymont Mansion, Italian and Japanese gardens, a carriage collection, 400 animals in wildlife exhibits, the Children’s Farm, and the Nature Center.
