Maymont Park 2

Maymont Park is a massive 100 acre estate in Richmond, Virginia along the James River. Major James Dooley and his wife Sallie gradually built and developed this estate from 18866 when they first bought this stretch of uncultivated farmland until Sallie's death in 1925, after which they left it to the city of Richmond. James Dooley fought in the Civil War on the side of the Confederates, and made his fortune working as a lawyer and later as an investor in the burgeoning southern railroad. There is a stream which flows down into their Japanese Garden, and along the way the streams forms a beautiful waterfall, as seen here. The people in the picture are just a random mother with her kids that happened to be there when I took the picture.
