Featured Neighborhood… Historic Roser Park
The first designated historic district in St. Petersburg, Historic Roser Park has Roser Park at its center and Booker Creek meandering throughout. Mature plantings of royal palms and old oaks mix with lush native vegetation. The streets are made of Augusta brick and the sidewalks of hex block. The neighborhood is known as “The Neighborhood a Cookie Built” after Charles M. Roser sold his Fig Newtons to the National Biscuit Company. He settled in St. Petersburg and developed this neighborhood where each home is unique and reflects the northern influences of the residents who flocked to St. Petersburg in the teens and 1920s. The houses are an architectural mix of Colonial, Mediterranean, Spanish, Prairie style, bungalow, and Florida cracker. Historic Roser Park is home to the State Geological Department, the Studebaker Building, which appears on the National Register, and the Old Florida Power Plant.
