I have often driven the brick streets of Allendale Terrace. The first things I notice when approaching this neighborhood are the majestic oak trees shading the area’s streets and homes. One can’t help but marvel at the stately old homes, many of which were built in the 1920s and 1930s. Due to my inborn interest in the history of St. Petersburg, I wondered about the history of Allendale Terrace. I’m really becoming friendly with the folks at our local library.
