The Old Northeast and Snell Isle neighborhoods feature some of the oldest homes in Pinellas County. Organized in the 1920’s by Perry Snell and John Hamlett, these neighborhoods are close to downtown St. Petersburg and are centered around public parks. The architecture of the oldest homes (1900-1940’s) are vernacular in architecture, with elements of Victorian, Colonial, and Traditional styles. These neighborhoods also feature homes of the 1920-1930’s Spanish Mediterranean, 1940’s Craftsman bungalows, and the classic 1950’s-1970’s Ranch style homes. Modern development has boomed in these neighborhoods since the 2000’s, as more people want to live in these areas with modern amenities.
