Welcome to St. Pete Preservation
St. Petersburg Preservation works to preserve St. Pete’s important sites and structures. We are not against development, but rather support thoughtful growth that honors our past.
Keep St. Pete Special
Help Protect “First Block” – Where it all started for the ‘Burg!
“First Block”, where Jannus Live is located, is threatened by massive new development. At the end of Oct., 2016 the block’s owners offered a new vision by submitting an application to redevelop the block with what some call the monster tower. The block’s history and buildings date back to the start of the city in 1888. There are a variety of ways to protect this history and to keep the block special, one being to designate the block and/or its buildings as landmarks. Mayor Kriseman has stated, “if we’re not willing to designate this block… then what are we willing to protect?” Unfortunately, not all of city council agrees! Your voice could make the difference as to what happens!
Our guided walking tours take guests on a detailed tour of St. Petersburg and beyond. Participants see the jewels of St. Pete’s past while learning about the founding of St. Petersburg and its historic architecture.
Movies In the Park
Movies in the Park, the best little event on the waterfront. Join us in May for a great line up of movies. Food and drink will be available or bring your own picnic basket. Don't forget your blanket.
SPP’s porch parties are a great way to see preservation in action! Hosted every few months at a historic home the parties feature food, drink, great company and a tour and talk by the homeowner.
