From its historical buildings and magnificent gardens to its animal exhibits and rolling lawns, Maymont truly offers something for everyone. Once the 100-acre Victorian estate of the Dooleys, Maymont was bequeathed to the city of Richmond in 1925 as a public park and museum. Today it continues to reflect the splendor of the Gilded Age and is filled with wonders the Dooleys never imagined.
