About Us

The reference to the existence of a Capital Trail between Williamsburg and Richmond made local citizens recommend “Colonial Trail” to the School Board representative who proposed the school’s name to the Henrico School Board in the fall of 2006. The school, located in the Three Chopt District, has a close proximity to Interstate 6, which suggests that perhaps there was a trail, in Colonial times, (old Three Chopt Road or Three Notch Trail) and later Route 250 (Broad Street), between Richmond and points west. The school was officially dedicated on Sept. 20, 2007.
