Kenwood

The Kenwood Historic District (also known as Historic Kenwood) is a U.S. historic district located in St. Petersburg,Florida. The district was designated on August 4, 2003 and is located immediately west of downtown, bounded by 9th Avenue North, 1st Avenue North, 19th Street North (adjacent to I-275) and 34th Street North. It contains 2,238 historic buildings, and Grand Central adjoins the district at its southern boundary.

The Kenwood Historic District is a 375-acre residential area best known for its historic bungalows. It consists mostly of one-story and two-story single family homes constructed between 1912 and 1945. Historic outbuildings, such as garages and garage apartments, are also common in the neighborhood. There are a variety of residential architectural styles represented in the district, including Frame and Masonry Vernacular, Craftsman Bungalow, Minimal Traditional, Tudor Revival, Mediterranean Revival, Colonial Revival, Ranch, Prairie, American Foursquare, Dutch Colonial Revival, Mission, and International. However, while many styles are evident, bungalows constitute more than 50 percent of the homes. Not all of these homes were built in their current locations: many of these Craftsman/bungalow style homes were relocated to the area in the 1930s from other neighborhoods in the city, helping to cement Historic Kenwood's bungalow identity. St. Petersburg High School (1926), listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is located in the heart of Historic Kenwood along 5th Avenue North. Six churches, including two brand new churches: Reliance and The Foundry, as well as numerous commercial buildings can be found within the district.

In addition to the large number of historic buildings remaining in the neighborhood, many of the historic landscape and streetscape elements remain. The majority of the avenues, which run in an east-west direction in the district, continue to be made of brick. Hexagonal pavers can still be found comprising many of the sidewalks. The high granite curbs are also still evident along many of the streets, which are lined with large majestic oak trees, as well as jacaranda, palms, and pine trees. Historic Kenwood is located on a plateau about 50 feet above sea level, making it much higher than other neighborhoods in the city.

Another notable feature of Historic Kenwood is Seminole Park. This historic park is rectangular in shape and is bounded by 3rd Avenue North, Burlington Avenue North, 30th Street North, and 29th Street North. The park was donated by Charles R. Hall, one of the City's first developers and an initial developer of Historic Kenwood. The park features many types of trees, grassy areas, sidewalks, playground equipment, and a modern pavilion in the center constructed in the Craftsman style that blends in with the surrounding historic architecture.
