"Samantha's World" at Maymont
Throughout the year, Maymont has wonderful programs for both young and old to explore and discover a bygone era. The estate and property is beautifully preserved for residents of the city of Richmond and surrounding counties to enjoy.
In this edition of Behind the Scenes, we visited with Nancy Lowden, Manager of Historical Programs at Maymont Foundations, and some of the participants at Maymont's very popular event, "Samatha's World" for young ladies, based on the American Girl doll. Victorian ladies help the girls explore the historic gardens, practice manners, and discover what it was like to live or work 100 years ago. The event ends with a carriage ride and tea party on the front porch.
“Samantha’s World” will be offered again this year on Thursday, April 12 from 9:30 a.m. until noon, and again on Thursday, July 19. For more information on this and other events, visit maymont.org.
