Henrico County Overview

Established in 1634, Henrico County in Virginia was named after the Citie of Henricus, Henrico was organized as one of the eight original Shires of Virginia in 1634. It is one of the United States’ oldest counties. The City of Richmond was officially part of Henrico County until 1842, when it became a fully independent city. As of the 2010 census, the population was 306,935, and the fifth most populous county in the state. The present-day Henrico County curves around the City of Richmond, surrounding it to the west, the north, and the east. The county is bounded by the Chickahominy River to the north and the James River and Richmond to the south. Richmond Raceway is in the central portion of Henrico County near Mechanicsville, just north of the Richmond city limits. The raceway seats approximately 60,000 people and holds two doubleheader race weekends per year. Additionally, Richmond International Airport is in the eastern portion of Henrico County in Sandston. In 1611, Thomas Dale founded the Citie of Henricus on a peninsula in the James River that is now called Farrar’s Island. Henricus was named for Henry Frederick, Prince of Wales and was destroyed during the Indian massacre of 1622, in which tribes attacked the settlers to drive them away. In 1752, Henrico relocated its seat to a more central location inside the city of Richmond, between Church Hill and what is now Tobacco Row. The county seat remained at 22nd and Main St in Richmond even after the city’s government became fully independent of the county in 1842. It was not until 1974 when the county moved out of the Old Henrico County Courthouse to a complex in the western portion of the county at the intersection of Parham Road and Hungary Springs Road in Laurel. In addition to the 1974 complex, in 1988 the county opened its Eastern Government Center to be more convenient to county residents in the eastern portion of the county. It is located on Nine Mile Road. Several Civil War battles were fought in Henrico. The county is home to a portion of the nationally protected Richmond National Battlefield Park. The total area of the county is 234 square miles of land, plus 11 square miles of water. Adjacent counties are: Powhatan, southwest of the James River, Richmond to the south, New Kent County to the northeast, Hanover to the north, Goochland to the west, Chesterfield to the south, and Charles City to the southeast. A total of 17 zip codes are utilized by the county, the largest of which is 23228.
