Maymont House is the former home of Major James H. Dooley and his wife, Sallie May. Designed by Edgerton Rogers and completed in 1893, the 33-room Romanesque Revival mansion exhibits richly carved furniture, oriental rugs, European porcelain, objet d'art and restored interiors boasting stained glass and other sumptuous detailing.

Three exceptional objects in the Maymont House Collection include the one-of-a-kind Tiffany and Company Dressing Table and Chair made of sterling silver and narwhal tusks; the monumental 12'9" rosewood Exposition Cabinet displayed at the Paris Universal Exposition in 1855; and the Swan Bed, a singular creation formed in the shape of a large swan made around 1910 to suit the whim of Mrs. Dooley.

Now maintained and operated by a private nonprofit foundation, Maymont's complex also features Italian and Japanese Gardens, an Arboretum, Nature Center, Native Virginia Wildlife Exhibits, Children's Farm and Carriage Collection.
