Located just west of downtown St. Petersburg, Historic Kenwood is a charming neighborhood filled with historic bungalows and tree-lined brick streets, where residents enthusiastically embrace the arts, and actively cultivate an authentic, friendly culture where people are welcoming, diverse, and engaged.
The Kenwood Historic District is a 375-acre residential area best known for its historic bungalows with architecture typical of St. Petersburg in the 1920s through the 1950s. A housing survey completed in 1995 identified 1104 structures in Historic Kenwood. Of these, 95% are considered contributing structures to their official entry in the National Registry of Historic Places. Although almost 100 years have passed since the original development of Historic Kenwood, very few homes have been destroyed and most renovations have kept the architectural integrity of the original structures intact.
The neighborhood is greatly enriched by the artists who live, work, and sell their wares here. Here you’ll find galleries and working studios in the Grand Central District on on the southern border. Throughout Historic Kenwood, you’ll find painters, potters, quilters, jazz musicians, opera singers, concert pianists, writers, poets, dancers, and many others living in our midst. This is a more vibrant, creative community because it embraces the arts and their artists. In Oct. 2014, they became an Artist Enclave Overlay District, in which artists benefit by being able to work, teach, and sell their wares in home studios.
