Henrico County is an irregularly shaped county which wraps around the west, north, east, and south of, but does not include, the legally independent city of Richmond, Virginia. Many of the NRHP-listed places in the county have addresses using Richmond as their name, because much of unincorporated Henrico County uses a "Richmond" mailing address. There are no incorporated towns in the county, and no new municipalities can be created within the county, by a state law.

- The latitude and longitude information provided in this table was derived originally from the National Register Information System, which has been found to be fairly accurate for about 99% of listings. For about 1% of NRIS original coordinates, experience has shown that one or both coordinates are typos or otherwise extremely far off; some corrections may have been made. A more subtle problem causes many locations to be off by up to 150 yards, depending on location in the country: most NRIS coordinates were derived from tracing out latitude and longitudes off of USGS topographical quadrant maps created under the North American Datum of 1927, which differs from the current, highly accurate WGS84 GPS system used by most on-line maps. Chicago is about right, but NRIS longitudes in Washington are higher by about 4.5 seconds, and are lower by about 2.0 seconds in Maine. Latitudes differ by about 1.0 second in Florida. Some locations in this table may have been corrected to current GPS standards.
