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.

John Marshall: In the Opinion of the Court (29 mins)

Chief Justice John Marshall helped shape the future of our nation.

His wisdom, patriotism and judicial expertise set an example of justice for the world to follow. Learn how Marshall’s leadership cemented the role of the Supreme Court as the Law of the Land in this Central Virginia Biography, John Marshall: In the Opinion of the Court.

Adventure Henrico: Scuba Diving (21 mins)

Breathing underwater is as easy as one, two three, well maybe four — days of training that is.

A Community’s Spirit: Historic Tales of Highland Springs (25 mins)

The Fourth Estate: The Story of the Richmond Times-Dispatch (34 mins)

Raymond Bennett Pinchbeck: The Good Neighbor (28 mins)

The Great War Remembered: Henrico’s Story of Service and Support (31 mins)

On April 6, 1917, the United States formally entered what would eventually come to be known as World War I. Every aspect of our society was affected. The citizens of Henrico County contributed their money, food, energy, and lives to the war effort. Henrico was also the site of a munitions plant staffed by patriotic women in what is now Sandston. Although millions died in combat or from disease, few reminders of the conflict exist today. Through archival film, posters, photographs, and the wartime letters of Meadow Farm’s Sheppard Crump, HCTV takes you back to the forgotten war.
