The CBS miniseries, Sally Hemings: An American Scandal, Dreamworks’ The Contender, Disney’s First Kid and numerous commercials are among the projects filmed on Maymont’s grounds. Maymont also offers many beautiful backdrops for bridal, family and senior portraits. Maymont Foundation welcomes the use of its grounds for photography, but reservations and payment are required for special photography and videography including films, commercials, advertisements, and portraits.
