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.


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.

What to do this Halloween in St Pete

This weekend, St Petersburg will be having many events, trails and walks to celebrate Halloween. Here are just a few of the best!

Trick or Treating in the Old Northeast neighborhood

Old Northeast residents have been decorating their homes in anticipation of Halloween for weeks. Anything from simple skeletons on the porch to full haunted houses. Ghosts, witches and zombies swing from trees, severed heads bump into passing trick-or-treaters, and the streets quickly fill as children emerge from buses and cars. Neighbors spend the evening on their porches, offering friendly greetings and candy to trick or treaters.

Since 1996 people continue to come from all over Pinellas to see the biggest celebration of its kind in the Tampa Bay area.

 Three ribbons are awarded for first, second and third places, and a special award is presented for the best-themed decor. Judges are neighborhood volunteers from all age groups who view entries the night before, then meet to vote on the winners.

 Hellview Cemetery

Hellview Cemetery is a free local haunted attraction in St. Pete, which started in 1996.  No one knows how old Hellview Cemetery really is-some say it existed even before the Seminole Indians ever set foot on the peninsula of what is now Saint Petersburg, Florida. 

This year the disappearance of Madame Oar is still leaving the power balance of Hellview in shambles. Swamp Water Maggie and her loyal tribe of were-wolves, the Lugaru family, have been battling every force of evil that rises within the walls of Hellview for years. Come and see what tries to escape from Hellview this year. Great costumes, makeup and sets.
