Abstract

The Dooley estate, Maymont, is located at 1700 Hampton Street in Richmond, Virginia. Once a dairy farm, the approximately 105-acre home site is adjacent to the popular Byrd Park and overlooks the James River. In this paper I have researched the architectural construction of the Dooley mansion and its significance to the Richmond area with regards to the Dooleys, their art collections, and their interest in European trends.
