Walking through Historic Old NE St. Pete

Take a walk through Historic Old NE St. Pete with the Price Group and learn about what makes Old NE St. Pete so special.

History

The subdivision began in 1911 by a group of men led by C. Perry Snell and J.C. Hamlett. Their goal was to establish the area as the premier residential neighborhood adjacent to the city of St. Petersburg along the shores of Tampa Bay and Coffee Pot Bayou. C. Perry Snell was a staunch advocate of William Straub’s waterfront park system. Snell was instrumental in extending the park northward to Coffee Pot Bayou by giving the city the major part of the waterfront land from 13th Avenue North to Coffee Pot Bayou. This open space park is an invaluable resource of our community. The area contains approximately 9,000 people and 5,300 residential units. The Historic Old Northeast is approximately 82 years old and was virtually “built-out” by the 1950s and 1960s. This makes it rich in history and historical value.
