The last house of old Fulton



Celeste sent in this pinhole photo of “the last house in Fulton” (700-704 Denny Street), from sometime between 1984 and 1989 or so. The houses were demolished in the late 1980s after a long a long fight by Spencer Armstead to preserve his childhood home.

Under the tracks


There is an amazing display of graffiti under the elevated train tracks that run behind the old Fulton Gas Works. Most of these are big, at least 8 or 9 feet high (I propped my bike up against one for scale).

Want to talk about the pollution in Gillie’s Creek?

My name is William Lineberry and I am a graduate student at VCU. I am currently working on a video project regarding pollution in Gillies Creek. The piece focuses on how the combined sewer overflow system has negatively impacted Gillies Creek and the residents that live near it.

To date, there are more than five outflow points on Gillies Creek. These outflow points spew raw sewage into Gillies Creek and the James River when mild to heavy rains occur in the area. If you or anyone you know would like to speak on the record regarding this issue, please contact by phone, or email. Thanks so much!

Are there coyotes in Fulton?

From the Fulton Hill facebook group:

I live about 2 blocks north of the NRC and I swear I saw a wolf or coyote run down the alley behind my house, and into the woods. Has anyone else seen wildlife like this around here? I just wanted to put it out there for any of those small dog/outdoor cat owners out there.

End of Year report for Sector 111


Lt.Minton’s Sector 111 January/End of Year report (PDF) is now available. Sector 111 encompasses Church Hill, Chimborazo, Church Hill North, Fulton, Oakwood, and Union Hill:

Happy New Year,

Violent crime for the year was down by –8%. Homicides were down by –50% in the sector. The two homicides occurred at 27th and Q street and on Old Nicholson Road in Histor- ic Fulton. These have both been cleared by arrest. Commercial Robberies were up from 3 to 6 with the majority of them cleared by arrest. Individual Robberies were down by –15% and Home Invasions were down by –43%. Aggravated Assaults were down by –5% and we cleared 100% of the Aggravated Assault Domestics.

Property crime for the year was down by –2%. We had 10 more burglaries than we did last year. We had a significant reduction in auto thefts, down by –49% from 47 to 24. Our in- crease in vehicle related thefts came from the theft of mopeds. We went from 22 to 30. Total crime for the sector was down by –3%. We ended the year with 666 total crimes. In relation to other sectors, this is one of the lowest total amounts out of the twelve sectors.

We enjoyed a lot of successes this year due to citizens keeping a watchful eye and re- porting what they saw to us. There are several people serving lengthy prison sentences due to this relationship between the community and the police department. As many of you know, I post a lot of information on the Church Hill Peoples News. Most of the time this information is well received and positive results often come from the postings. I do make every attempt to take the information that is received via social media and mold our crime fighting strategies around it.

This year we started a couple different email chains with various neighborhoods and this has worked well for all who have been involved. Feel free to email me if you would like to be included in an email chain that encompasses where you live. The bigger email chains cur- rently cover Church Hill and Fulton, but there are other neighborhoods involved as well. We also work closely with Henrico County Police department as far as sharing information and combating crime trends. Criminals now no boundaries and we take notice of this.

Lets talk a little about New Years Eve, I read a lot of different posts online to include that RPD was an epic failure. I can tell you there were only two violent crimes that occurred on New Year’s Eve, that’s city wide. There were no shootings. There weren’t any violent crimes in sector 111. There are a lot of suggestions on how to curb the gunfire on New Year’s Eve. I will leave you with this, shooting a gun into the air is a class 1 misdemeanor which is the same punishment that reckless driving carries…

As always thank you for the hard work you, the citizens, contribute to helping us make sector 111 a safer place to live and work!
