The charm of the Historic Kenwood neighborhood can be seen in the plentiful and beautiful mature trees, the red brick paved streets and the hexagon block sidewalks that wind through the neighborhood. The homes are primarily in the craftsman or bungalow style architecture, prevalent in the 1920’s and 30’s when most of the homes were built. This housing is typical of early St. Petersburg development, as population in St Pete boomed. Thanks to neighborhood efforts to preserve these stunning homes, Historic Kenwood has one of the highest concentration of bungalow homes of any city in Florida, and honors these homes annually with their signature event, BungalowFest.
Historic Kenwood features many historically and architecturally significant homes, with fireplaces, hardwood floors, large windows, high ceilings and stately front porches. The beautiful Seminole Park is the centerpiece of the Historic Kenwood neighborhood, containing a public pavilion built by the neighborhood. The park also features benches painted by local artists and a playground area for neighborhood kids. It is centrally located and has quick access to all of St. Petersburg’s local businesses, grocery stores and I-275. Other landmarks include St. Petersburg High School, and the booming Grand Central District with it’s unique shops and restaurants. The neighborhood association sponsors social events such as neighborhood walking tours, picnics in the park, kid-friendly events, and Friday night porch parties.
