A Warm Welcome To Historic Kenwood!

Located just west of downtown St. Petersburg, Florida, Historic Kenwood is a charming neighborhood filled with historic bungalows and tree-lined brick streets. We enthusiastically embrace the arts, and we actively cultivate an authentic, friendly culture where people are welcoming, diverse, and engaged. Click here to see a short video produced by the City of St. Petersburg.

Our neighborhood association  actively promotes a wide range of activities aimed at making Historic Kenwood a better and better place to live and work. There's a lot to see on this website, so please take a few minutes to get to know us and all the things we do. We're always seeking volunteers who bring fresh ideas and good energy. Come get involved!

We have a neighborhood forum on Nextdoor.

Here is a link to our 2016 NUSA winning video. 
NUSA awarded the first place prize in the Physical Revitalization category of the NOTY competition to the Historic Kenwood Neighborhood Association in St. Petersburg, Fla. The neighborhood's Partnership Program brings together neighborhoods and local community vounteers with physically- and/or financially-challenged homeowners to make much-needed exterior home repairs and yard clean-ups. In 2015, the program revitalized six Historic Kenwood homes and assisted two adjoining neighborhoods to begin similar programs. Click here.
