Frozen in Time: The Ruins of the James River Steam Brewery (23 mins)

The arched cellar entrance of David Yuengling Junior’s once mighty James River Steam Brewery is a portal to an amazing tale that lies buried in a Rocketts Landing hillside, nearly forgotten for a century. The mysterious facade bears no trace of the famous name or the tumultuous times during which an American staple, lager beer, was produced on a massive scale right here in Henrico County. Join HCTV for a journey into the cellars and back in time.

Standing Tall: Native Trees of Henrico County (25 mins)

From majestic oaks to loblolly pines, the native trees of Henrico not only enhance the natural beauty of the county and provide a habitat for animals, they play a vital part in the ecology of our environment. Join HCTV as we learn about the variety of native trees in our area and the role they play in the cycle of life.

Haunted Henrico: Are Ghosts Dwelling in Historic County Properties? (23 mins)

Is it simply folklore, or is it paranormal? Imagination, or science? Most of us have heard ghost stories throughout our lives, and we love to be intrigued and even scared by the tales of mystical spirits among us. Henrico’s history goes back centuries, and many colorful characters have passed through the county leaving their legacies behind — but did they leave? Walkerton, Dabbs House and Meadow Farm are three of the county’s historic properties dating back to the early 1800s, all of them having their fair share of ghost stories and reported sightings. Join HCTV as we explore the phenomenon in Haunted Henrico: Are Ghosts Dwelling in Historic County Properties?

Vote Here! Virginia’s History of Voting and Elections (25 mins)

For more than two centuries, Virginia’s electorate has expanded and become more representative of its people — though not without struggle. Much like the voting ranks have changed over time, so has the process. Changes brought by the Voting Rights Act and other measures inspired by the Civil Rights Movement reverberated throughout the Commonwealth. The unfettered right to vote is available to more Virginians today than at any point in the state’s history. That right is not always exercised, however. Join HCTV as we explore the history of voting and the evolution of elections in Virginia.

Raymond Bennett Pinchbeck: The Good Neighbor (28 mins)

The students at Pinchbeck Elementary School are known as the Rays — for good reason. The school’s name and mascot come from Raymond B. Pinchbeck, a man who served his community locally and nationally. As a Henrico School Board member, a Dean at the University of Richmond and a lieutenant in the U.S. Navy, Pinchbeck brightened lives throughout the community and inspired a character in the popular 1970s television series The Waltons.

Safely Rest: The Saga of Taps, An American Bugle Call (27 mins)

Taps, the unmistakable bugle melody that has signaled day’s end for our military for more than 150 years, is perhaps best known as a song of mourning and as the final tribute at funerals for service members. While the twenty-four deceptively simple notes are easily recognizable, their origin is much more complex. Join HCTV for a musical journey that spans the Eastern Henrico Civil War battles in the summer of 1862, and the creation of Taps at Berkeley Plantation soon thereafter, to Arlington National Cemetery where it is played an average of thirty times a day.

Desegregation: Stories of Integration of Henrico Public Schools (28 mins)

The Civil Rights movement of the 1950s and ’60s brought seismic change to American society. Perhaps the greatest impact was felt in education. The U.S. Supreme Court’s 1954 decision in Brown vs. the Board of Education ordered that racial segregation in schools gave unequal treatment to blacks and whites, and was unconstitutional. The decision meant school systems would have to integrate. In Henrico County, the process of school desegregation occurred gradually from 1963 to 1969. Join HCTV as we hear the stories and learn the history of this revolution in education.

From the Mines of Henrico: The Beginnings of Our Nation’s Coal Industry (21 mins)

Coal has been used as an energy source worldwide for thousands of years. In the United States, the coal industry originated on the banks of the James River and mines right here in Henrico County. Join HCTV as we document the industry’s rise and fall, and see what remains today of Henrico’s often overlooked coal history.

Hometown Hero: Arthur Ashe, Jr. (28 mins)

Arthur Ashe, Jr. is known worldwide as a tennis champion, an advocate for education and for his tragic death due to AIDS-related pneumonia as a result of a blood transfusion. Ashe’s legacy and his ties to Central Virginia are further cemented in the Henrico County public school that bears his name, Arthur Ashe, Jr. Elementary. Join HCTV as we explore the man behind the tennis racket, and learn about how he used his notoriety to help the people of Richmond, especially children.

By George! The Story of Henry Ward (17 mins)

Ward Elementary School stands along Darbytown Road in Henrico County’s rural Varina area. The school takes its name from Henry Ward, a compassionate, down-to-earth family man who helped spark the educations of a generation of local children. In and out of the classroom, Ward demonstrated an ability to lead and inspire. Nine years after Ward’s death, the Henrico School Board honored his years of service to the community by naming a new school after him. Join HCTV as we explore his life and legacy in By George: The Story of Henry Ward.

Strumming up the Past: Henrico’s Bluegrass Music (24 mins)

Bluegrass represents a distinctly American style of music, a beautiful blend of old-timey, Celtic, gospel, country and blues. Henrico County is keeping the music alive by organizing a bluegrass jam each month at Dorey Park. If you’ve stood before the microphone and or clapped from the audience, you know there’s something about bluegrass that tugs on your soul.

A Piece of Our Past: The Old Henrico County Courthouse and Jail (32 mins)

Long before Henrico’s modern administration and courts complex was built on Parham Road, the center of county government was nestled on a little island in the City of Richmond. Join HCTV as we chronicle more than two and a half centuries since the first Henrico courthouse was built at 22nd and Main, the controversy surrounding the ownership of the property, the gradual relocation of county operations and the ultimate fate of the Victorian marvel that still rests there today.

Going Up? The History and Evolution of the Modern Elevator (18 mins)

Elevators provide a fast, practical way to move in our daily lives. The elevator — or “lift” as it’s known in some parts of the world — was not originally designed with people in mind. They carried materials and freight for industry. However, elevators quickly became a selling point for hotels and helped bring about modern skyscrapers, including the Empire State Building. Join HCTV as we look at the evolution of the modern elevator and how Henrico’s Department of Building Inspections ensures our county’s elevators are safe and sound.

Elizabeth Jane Holladay: Trailblazer of Public Education (15 mins)

Henrico County Public Schools is widely recognized as one of the nation’s premier school systems, but this modern model of excellence comes from humble beginnings. One cornerstone was laid in the late 19th century, in the parlor of a home on Mountain Road, where a dedicated teacher began sharing her love of learning with a handful of children from the nearby farms. By the time she was done, Elizabeth Jane Holladay had helped build a foundation for public education in Henrico. Students today continue to learn under her watchful eye — at Holladay Elementary School in central Henrico, just a couple miles from her original classroom. Join HCTV as we learn about Miss Lizzie, her life and her dedication to education.

Unsolved Henrico: Jacque Gauthier Homicide (8 mins)

On August 17, 2015, 45 year old Jacque Gauthier was shot and killed while riding his bicycle in the area of Edgefield Street, just a few blocks from his home. With no apparent motive and very few clues, Henrico Police continue to investigate this active case and are asking for the public’s help in solving it. Viewer discretion is advised.
