Neighborhood

The Greater Woodlawn is a community on the north side of St. Petersburg. It is bounded by 22nd Avenue on the south, 30th Avenue on the north, 16th Street on the west, and 9th Street on the east. Within these boundaries there are approximately 625 homes. The area is composed of older homes from the 1920 and 30s and more recently constructed homes from the 1940s and 1950s. The majority of homes in the area are private residences with a limited number of rentals interspersed throughout the area. The neighborhood has one designated park, Blanc Park on 28th Ave. N., and several shaded, grassy quadrants.Throughout the years, Greater Woodlawn has been recognized for its cohesiveness and community pride. This atmosphere has been likened to towns in the New England states, where people know their neighbors and none is hesitant to say hello or lend a helping hand.

History

This half square mile neighborhood consists of 11 separate subdivisions. The earliest subdivision, Map of Pinellas, Addition to St. Petersburg, Florida, was platted in February of 1912 and consists of the entire NE quadrant, with a park (today’s Blanc Park) at the corner. Three more were platted in 1912, 1913, and 1920, occupying the SE quadrant. Washington Heights, which occupies the west half of the NW quadrant, was platted in 1914. The eastern half of this quadrant consists of four subdivisions, three of which were platted in the 1920s and one in 1950. The Woodlawn Subdivision, which consists of the entire SW quadrant, and for which the general area has been named due to the prominent entrance pillars, was not platted until 1924. This land was owned and developed by the Consolidated Development and Engineering Corporation, whose president was the Col. Raymond C. Turk from Jacksonville, Florida. Most of the earliest construction in the neighborhood was concentrated in the SE quadrant, along 9th Street North (previously called Euclid Boulevard) and along 16th Street North, north of 26th Avenue North. Early maps also show that 38th Street was once called Johns Pass Road.
