Welcome to Historic Old Northeast
A dazzling neighborhood with easy access to the water.
Nestled along the beautiful waterfront of Coffee Pot Bayou is one of the area’s oldest and most prominent neighborhoods. The area’s quaint charm and luxury also feature an abundance of outdoor activities and delicious restaurants. With a delightful shopping district and a collection of iconic landmarks, Historic Old Northeast is a charming, walkable neighborhood teeming with life.
Founded in 1911, Historic Old Northeast was the first established subdivision of St. Petersburg. Before this, it was full of agriculture and groves of pine and magnolias (and the area still has plenty of these to this day). In the late 20th century, the region experienced a resurgence. Many homes and businesses were preserved, and the community was revived as a historic neighborhood.
Both on and off the waterfront, there is a mix of Mediterranean and bungalow-style homes here. With its lush environment full of jacarandas, palms, and magnolias, Historic Old Northeast offers a serene and romantic journey into the past that still has all the easy trappings of modern convenience.
