Richmond, Va

Maymont, Richmond’s most imposing and important Gilded Age mansion, was constructed for Major James Dooley in 1893. It has undergone a careful restoration and resulting interpretation in recent years by its stewards, the Maymont Foundation. Frazier Associates was retained to complete a historic structures report on three of Maymont’s outbuildings, constructed between 1893 and the 1930s, to aid in a future transportation related interpretation. The carriage house, stable, and garage were subject to a detailed study including measured drawings using digital photogrammetry, a structural assessment and paint analysis along with historic research to better understand these buildings. A nationally known carriage expert was also part if the team and helped inform the original uses of the buildings’ spaces as well as individual elements and details.
