Never Forget: Cynthia Gilliam-Ford Cold Case (21 mins)

In January of 1991 Henrico Police discovered human skeletal remains wrapped in a blanket in a wooded area of the county. Evidence at the scene could not help identify the victim or lead police to a suspect. Nearly two decades later, a facial reconstruction sketch released to the media proved to be the key in uncovering the identity of this Jane Doe. Police are now hot on the trail of her killer and they need your help to find the murderer of Cynthia Gilliam-Ford. Never Forget.

From Shoe Man to Supervisor: Robert Coleman Longan (1885-1960) (19 mins)

Robert C. Longan left an indelible mark across Henrico despite the limits of his own education. Longan grew up on his family’s farm in rural Louisa County, before moving to Richmond where he married and became a successful businessman. In 1920, he opened Longan’s Family Shoe Store downtown at Fifth and Broad, and in 1943 was elected to represent the Tuckahoe District on the Henrico Board of Supervisors. Longan retired from the board on December 31, 1959, and died from a heart attack the very next day. He left such a mark on Henrico that community leaders thought of him in 1964, when a new elementary school was being planned off West End Drive. R.C. Longan Elementary was dedicated two years later, in 1966.

The History of Recreation and Parks (22 mins)

For more than four decades, Henrico’s Division of Recreation and Parks has been committed to helping residents pursue good health and good times. With more than 4 million park visitors each year, the division has embraced the responsibility of caring for more than 3,600 acres of parkland, 140 recreational buildings and 35 historic sites. But the Division of Recreation & Parks had humble beginnings, with a few recreational activities organized at local schools. Join HCTV as we learn about the history of Recreation & Parks, and how the division has grown to serve the residents of Henrico.

Edward A. Beck: Manager, Leader, Visionary (23 mins)

Edward A. Beck, Henrico’s fourth county manager, led Henrico for a quarter of a century during times of significant growth. Beck drew upon his unique skills as a civil engineer to guide the county through a period of transition following World War II. His vision resulted in the vastly different, modernized Henrico that we know today. Join HCTV as we explore Beck’s life, his leadership style and the legacy he left behind.

MONEY: The Evolution of Currency in America (25 mins)

Is there anything more American than the dollar bill? Today it is instantly recognized around the world and universally accepted as payment for just about anything. But American currency traveled a long and colorful course over several centuries before it became the global force we know today. Its development is intertwined with the nation’s history, and its evolution continues. Join HCTV as we explore the progressive phases of our legal tender in MONEY: The Evolution of Currency in America.

The Four Legged Force: Life in Henrico’s K-9 Unit (34 mins)

Join HCTV as we take a look at Henrico’s canine unit, and meet the officers who work with their furry and feisty partners to help protect our citizens and solve crimes in The Four Legged Force: Life In Henrico’s K-9 Unit.

Between The Lines: How Reconstruction Redrew The Map of Henrico (22 mins)

You may know which magisterial district you live in, but do you know how that district came to be, or why its boundaries are where they are? The reasons are far more interesting and complex than you may think. Our districts and our Board of Supervisors structure of governance can trace their roots back to the turbulent years following the Civil War, known as the Reconstruction Period, and have been evolving with the times ever since.

Jackson Davis: Catalyst for Educational Equality (22 mins)

Jackson Davis made his name as an education reformer. He travelled with his camera, taking thousands of photographs documenting the often-poor condition of African-American education in the South during the first half of the 20th century. These stark images and Davis’ meticulous notes helped attract private investment that gradually lifted rural communities still suffering from the Civil War. While his service to Henrico lasted only a few years, Davis’ legacy continues. In 1962, the School Board opened Jackson Davis Elementary honoring the catalyst for educational equality.

Monticello: Thomas Jefferson’s Dream (25 mins)

Thomas Jefferson’s dream was to build a home in the mountains of Virginia. Throughout the years, his many experiences gave him a wealth of knowledge to make this dream come true. Monticello not only reflects Jefferson’s many interests, but also embodies the spirit of all the people who lived and worked to make this home one of the most famous man-made wonders of Virginia.

Driving Force: Henrico’s Traffic Safety Unit (27 mins)

Join HCTV as we look inside the Driving Force: Henrico’s Traffic Safety Unit.

Forging Freedom: The Story of Gabriel’s Rebellion (29 mins)

Were it not for a typical late summer storm in Central Virginia, the events planned for August 30, 1800 might have changed the history of our country forever. A slave named Gabriel, owned by Thomas Henry Prosser of Brookfield plantation, conceived and organized a widespread slave uprising. Involving several Virginia localities, it was possibly the most far-reaching slave uprising planned in the history of the South. The plan might have succeeded had it not been for a sudden, severe downpour and the disclosure of the plot by several slaves, including Tom and Pharoah, who belonged to Mosby Sheppard of Meadow Farm. The alarm went out and the rebellion was thwarted. The effects of the conspiracy were profound and as a result, county and state leaders instituted legislation to regulate the movement of slaves and free blacks. Join HCTV as we tell the story of Gabriel and the failed insurrection in Forging Freedom: The Story of Gabriel’s Rebellion.

Reinvest: Commercial Investment Tax Abatement Program (22 mins)

Henrico County’s mature buildings and commercial corridors have history and character worth preserving, and the Reinvest Program provides a partial tax exemption to encourage the renovation, rehabilitation or replacement of these older properties. Watch as HCTV shows how this commercial investment tax abatement program has resulted in the rejuvenation of local businesses and older corridors throughout the county. Henrico representatives, local developers and business owners tell us why Henrico’s Reinvest Program is a positive proposition for everyone involved.
