ST. PETERSBURG — Eight homes in St. Petersburg's Historic Old Northeast neighborhood will be open for a self-guided holiday tour on Sunday afternoon.

The area is one of the city's most venerable subdivisions, begun in 1911 by a group of men including C. Perry Snell and J.C. Hamlett. The houses on tour this year all were constructed during the 1920s and range in styles from Mediterranean revival to Colonial and Dutch Colonial.

Visitors will be able to see how the owners have blended contemporary features with classic styles during renovations and additions.

Family heirlooms, artwork, salvaged materials, workout spaces and garden and pool designs are among the features that encouraged neighborhood leaders to invite the hosts to participate in the showcase. The houses are decorated for the holidays and include collections of menorahs, nativity scenes and Christmas trees.

Homeowners and volunteer docents will be available to discuss details.

Many of the houses are within easy walking distance of one another. Shuttles will be available to transport guests between houses. Tickets may be purchased in advance online or at various retail outlets that are detailed on the neighborhood association's website: honna.org. Day-of-tour tickets are available for pickup from 2:30 to 7 p.m. Sunday at Westminster Presbyterian Church, 126 11th Ave. NE, and Westminster Palm View, 939 Beach Drive NE.

The 13th annual tour is presented by the neighborhood association and is partially sponsored by the city of St. Petersburg. Proceeds benefit HONNA projects and Clothes to Kids, which provides new and quality used clothing to low-income, school-age children in Pinellas County.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Days before the mayoral primary, Mayor Rick Kriseman's decision to let a Floribbean restaurant open in Midtown's historic Manhattan Casino has caused political angst within the voting bloc he can least afford to lose: the black community.
