Come join St. Petersburg Preservation this Thursday, June 11, for a special summer evening walking tour leaving from the historic Detroit Hotel at the NW corner of Central Avenue and 2nd Street at 5:30 P.M. (sharp!). The two hour tour will include a pleasant stroll in both a portion of downtown and in Historic Kenwood, one of the most intact bungalow neighborhoods in the country. We will travel between downtown and Kenwood aboard one of PSTA’s trolley/buses. At the walking tour’s end, we hope you will plan on spending a little extra time with us to enjoy twilight and to relax on the pleasant front deck at the Craftsman House Gallery & Cafe while sipping an iced tea (free with the tour) or quaffing a beer or wine or enjoying one of the Cafe’s wonderful wraps or salads (available for purchase). The Gallery/Cafe structure was built in 1918 as the model home for the Kenwood neighborhood,

The tour route will follow a “modified” version of our popular tour, “Westward Ho! from the Waterfront,” so even if you have previously taken this tour you are sure to learn something new and to enjoy yourself! Participants will get to see some of the jewels of St. Pete’s past while learning about the City’s history and architecture. The walking tour will include sections of both downtown and historic Kenwood, including a visit inside a private restored bungalow. City Council Chair Jeff Danner, one of our preservation supporters, will be leading us through the Kenwood neighborhood.
