Celebrate the season at Maymont! James and Sallie Dooley’s decorated home brings the wonders of Christmas past to life and is sure to put everyone in the holiday spirit. Glittering trimmings on the 12-foot Christmas tree, the dining room set for a feast, evergreen decorations and poinsettias, sentimental Christmas cards and beautifully wrapped gifts remind us that some of our most beloved traditions began in the Victorian era. Behind the scenes, the butler, cook and other domestic staff make preparations for the Dooleys’ first Christmas celebration in their new home. Guided tours of the upstairs available every half-hour; last tour begins at 4:30pm. Tour capacities are limited. Non-members may purchase tour tickets online. Members and group tours, email us or call 804-358-7166, ext. 329 to reserve your spot.
Special Monday opening December 23 and 30. Closed Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.
