Part of a Complex of Local Services

The need to centralize the county's government and to provide adequate jail facilities prompted local officials to take measures to build a new complex. A dedication of the new court facility at Parham and Hungary Spring roads took place in 1974. It was followed by the construction of the County Administration Building, Juvenile Court Center, and Human Services Building. In 1988, the Government Center in Eastern Henrico opened to provide services for a growing population.

In 1992, as stipulated in the original deed, ownership of the 1896 courthouse building at 22nd and East Main streets reverted to the heirs of the original owner because the property no longer served as the county's Seat of Justice. The heirs sold it at auction later that year.
