HISTORY OF PINELLAS COUNTY

MADEIRA BEACH

“Two Miles Long and a Smile Wide” is the happy slogan of the town and the locals refer to their little city as “Mad Beach.”

Madeira Beach incorporated in the early 1950s.  The old mom and pop motels that were so charming not so many years ago have been replaced by oceanfront condominiums.  The beach is still accessible and  is as pretty as ever.  The town is largely residential and many of the residents are snow-birds, so the place is quieter than some of the more touristy areas along the Pinellas County beaches.

Two areas in Madeira Beach draw a fair number of locals and tourist’s;

The first is John’s Pass Village, a shopping and dining venue centered along a boardwalk.  The boardwalk was built in 1980 and the area has continued to develop with the fishing village theme over the years.

The second place that draws a lot of interest, especially photographers, is The Church by the Sea.  The non-denominational church was built in the 1940s.  Although it is an attractive building, the thing that makes it popular to shutterbugs is the Spanish style tower on the church.  No matter which way you look at it, the tower resembles a giant chicken!  Locals refer to it as “the chicken church.”

According to the US Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 3.3 square miles, of which 1.0 square mile is land, and 2.2 square miles are water.  The 2020 Census reported the population to be 4,301.

In 2020 there were 258 properties that sold for an average sales price of $510,208 and an average of 116 days on market.  There are currently 16 properties listed for sale with an average list price of $721,968.

HISTORY OF PINELLAS COUNTY

LARGO


It was 1886, when the Orange Belt Railroad was coming through the area that residents came together to give their community a name.  It seemed that the railroad would only build a station if the stop had a name.  Some residents wished to name the town after the daughter of a prominent resident Gideon Blitch – Luluville.  Ultimately they chose to name their town Largo, after the town’s large lake.  (In an ironic twist, the Largo lake was completely drained by the Cross Bayou Drainage District 50 years later).  Others argue that Largo gained its name from the city of Largo, Scotland, where several of the area’s settlers came from.   Because of its central location and rich farmlands, Largo quickly became the center of the area’s citrus industry, earning the title “Citrus City.”

The town was officially incorporated in 1905, and in 1913 became the first town in Florida – and the second in the nation – to adopt a town manager form of government.  The town grew rapidly through the boom times of the 1920s. It switched back and forth from “town” to “city” a few times and became a city again in 1974.

Today, residents and visitors alike flock to Largo’s Heritage Village, an open-air historical village and museum with structures dating back to the mid-late 19th century.  The Heritage Village is adjoining the Botanical Gardens, a real hidden gem!  With 182 acres showcasing flora, fauna, and natural resources in lovely surroundings…and it’s pet friendly!

According to the US Census Bureau, the city has a total of 19.47 square miles, of which 18.48 square miles is land and 0.99 square miles is water.  The 2020 Census reported the population to be 84,948.

In 2020 there were 1,921 properties that sold for an average sales price of $252,110 and an average of 35 days on market.  There are currently 94 properties listed for sale with an average list price of $279,164.

HISTORY OF PINELLAS COUNTY


KENNETH CITY

Kenneth City began as 340 acres of pasture land and was incorporated April 30, 1957 as a tax-free community of single family homes.

Kenneth City was named after developer Sidney Colen’s son Kenneth.  Several of Colen’s other projects have carried the names of his children.  He named these developments after his children not to immortalize them, but to strengthen his commitment to do the best job he could “because I would never do anything to disgrace their names.”

Colen said Kenneth City was “born as a protest of over-bearing regulations and taxes.”  He intended the town to be a model community.

The town has grown nearly ten times in size since it originated.  Kenneth City has also become a lot more active in the last few years.  The first town manager since the early days was hired in 2014.  Kenneth City has always been a very safe area.  The town has one of the lowest crime rates in the state of Florida.  In fact, its motto is “A Safe, Friendly, Small Town.”  A quick drive around the city and you will be able to see that this is an apt description.  Kenneth City has great schools, low crime and a fantastic community spirit.  The little town has accomplished a lot in just over 50 years of existence.

According to the US Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 0.7 square miles, all land.  The 2020 Census reported the population to be 5,121.

In 2020 there were 100 properties that sold for an average sales price of $182,740 and an average of 38 days on market.  There are currently 12 properties listed for sale with an average list price of $141,392.

HISTORY OF PINELLAS COUNTY

INDIAN SHORES

Indian Shores was originally an Indian campsite and got its name from the large red rocks found along the shoreline.  The first “settlers” were a pair of Robinson-Crusoe-type brothers named Cochran.  In 1883 four Cedar Key speculators sailing to St. Petersburg, stopped to explore the Island.

Indian Shores was incorporated on September 16, 1949 and was called Indian Rocks Beach, South Shore at the time.  The name was changed to Indian Shores August 14, 1973.

In addition to the beautiful beach, Indian Shores is known as the home of the Seaside Seabird Sanctuary, a non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue & treatment of sick & injured birds.  At the sanctuary you can leisurely stroll through the 1.7 acres which is home to nearly 100 permanently disabled birds which are on display in large aviaries.  While at the sanctuary view the memorial dedicated to the late Jim Backus (Mr. Howell of Gilligan’s Island) and from longtime Redington Shores resident Dawn Wells (Mary-Ann of Gilligan’s Island), located in the sanctuary’s Shade Garden. 

According to the US Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 0.9 square miles, of which 0.3 square miles is land and 0.6 square miles is water.  The 2020 Census reported the population to be 1,468.

In 2020 there were 203 properties that sold with an average sales price of $621,761 and an average of 58 days on market.  There are currently 15 properties listed for sale with an average list price of $1,457,953.
