More on Historic Kenwood

This district was designated in 2003 and is just west of downtown containing over 2200 historical buildings and the Grand Central district at its southern boundary. It is a 375-acre residential community known for historic bungalows.

It consists of mostly one and two-story single-family homes constructed between 1912 and 1945. You'll find historic outbuildings such as garages and garage apartments are commonplace in the neighborhood. There's a variety of architectural styles represented including both frame and masonry vernacular, Craftsman bungalow, minimal traditional, tutor revival, Mediterranean revival, colonial, ranch, American foursquare, Dutch colonial, mission, international, and prairie. You can see that there is a variety of styles and designs however, more than 50% of the homes are bungalows.

Also, many of these bungalow-style homes were relocated to the Kenwood area in the 1930s from other neighborhoods throughout the city helping to create the Historic Kenwood's Bungalow identity. Even the school, the St. Petersburg high school, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places located in the heart of the neighborhood. There are six churches including two brand-new churches and multiple commercial buildings.

Much of the historic landscape and streetscape elements still remain and the majority of the avenues, which run in an East and West direction, continue to be made out of brick and cobblestone. You'll find hexagon all pavers along many of the sidewalks, high granite curbs, and large majestic oak trees. Kenwood is located on a plateau about 50 feet above sea level, making it much higher than other neighborhoods in the city.

Seminole Park is one of the notable landmarks of the historic Kenwood district. This rectangular park is bordered by 3rd Ave., North, Burlington Ave., North, 30th St. N., and 29th St. N. and was donated by Charles R Hall, one of the city's first developers and an initial developer of the Kenwood district. You'll find grassy areas, sidewalks, playground structures, and a modern pavilion.

In the early 20th century the Kenwood district was a working and middle-class neighborhood. It was one of the earliest neighborhoods to be developed outside of downtown St. Petersburg, first platted in 1912. It was around the 1920s when his St. Petersburg became a favorite vacation destination when development reached its peak due to the location west of downtown, easily accessed by streetcar or automobiles.

Why choose the Historic Kenwood district?

Folks love living in the historic Kenwood district and the Craftsman bungalows are just one of the many reasons people love it. Other reasons include its dog-friendly neighborhoods. St. Petersburg in general is super dog friendly and most restaurants have a permit to allow sidewalk seating, ideal for those that like to bring along their four-legged friends. But the Kenwood district takes this to a new level. There are some bars and coffee shops that don't serve food which will allow you to bring your furry companion inside plus there are dozens of dog parks and even a dog bar within walking distance from most areas in Kenwood. The Dog Bar as it's appropriately named is a unique combination of an off-leash dog park and a full-service bar. The dog park boasts over 4500 ft.² of fenced-in off-leash fun and there are party packages, burgers, bandannas, and delicious beer for those dog owners.

The Grand Central District located on Kenwood's southern border is a unique part of the town comprised of restaurants, art galleries, breweries, and bars. This ever-evolving area just keeps getting better and because downtown St. Petersburg has become increasingly expensive for local businesses, many are moving to the Grand Central district.

It's a non-flood zone. While most of St. Petersburg is practically at sea level, the Kenwood district is not. It has some of the highest elevations in Pinellas County which is especially comforting when a hurricane rolls through town. This area, boasting the highest elevation, is the last to evacuate in a high-intensity storm.

Seminole Park – this is where the Historic Kenwood Neighborhood Association hosts "Pinot in the Park" once a year. The entire neighborhood gathers for this wine and locally catered food event and it's a perfect place to get to know your neighbors.

Close to downtown. The Historic Kenwood area is close to downtown St. Petersburg but not quite as expensive for businesses and shops. You can take a quick streetcar down the road, jump in an Uber which would be less than 10 bucks to get you there and back, and there's a lot to do in St. Petersburg downtown including the old historic district and the beaches.
