The Allendale Terrace section of St. Petersburg is noted for being on high ground, stately old oak trees, large estate homes built in the 1920s and 1930s, brick streets, and Allendale Park. The neighborhood is mostly residential with one commercial operation and two churches.
Seventy-four homes were built prior to World War II. There were 186 built from the beginning of the war to 1960, and 50 homes since then. The homes are 86 percent owner-occupied, 63 homes with pools, 94 homes have fireplaces, and the median heated square footage is 1,500. Allendale Terrace is considered by many to be the finest non-waterfront area of St. Petersburg.
According to some historians, Allendale Terrace can trace its roots to a 1920s hurricane. A picture of the St. Petersburg Yacht Club underwater, publicized in the St. Petersburg Times, dampened some of the interest in waterfront property that Snell was developing at that time. Cade B. Allen purchased 160 acres of high ground bound to the east by 7th Street North, to the west by 12th Street, to the south by 34th Avenue, and to the north by 42nd Avenue. Haines Road, a major road to downtown St. Petersburg, was part of the southwestern edge of Allendale Terrace.
Ninth Street (then known as Euclid Boulevard) was the major street in the development and the first houses built faced it. A trolley line ran from downtown to 34th Avenue North and then turned east to Locust Street NE. It was more for sightseeing than it was for transportation since there were few houses and no businesses along the route.
