OSHNA's Historic Districts
Old Seminole Heights has a wealth of historic structures. Some of these, like Hillsborough Highschool, sit on the historic register and others are grouped into one of two current historic districts. However, most of our historic structures exist outside of recognized districts. In all corners of Old Seminole Heights, not only do the historic structures stand out but so does the old fashioned sense of community--new or old home, it's the sense of community that is valued most.
Seminole Heights Residential District
Type: Local and National Historic District
National Boundaries: Roughly bounded by Osborne, Florida, Hanna, and Cherokee Aves.
Local Boundaries: Slightly larger and include a small section East of I-275 bounded roughly by Hillsborough Blvd, Henry Ave, I-275, and Nebraska Ave. (Does not include commercial structures on Nebraska or Hillsborough.)
Hampton Terrace Historic District
Type: National Historic District
National Boundaries: Roughly bounded by Hanna Ave., 15th St., Hillsborough Ave., and Nebraska Ave.
The Seminole Heights Residential Overlay District
Type: City Code Overlay
Purpose: The purpose and intent of the Seminole Heights Residential Overlay is to ensure that infill residential development and additions thereto are compatible in building and structural orientation, height, lot dimensional requirements and other site spatial relationships to the precedent within the established neighborhood. Nonresidential properties are not subject to the provisions of the overlay district.
Boundaries: Roughly bounded by the river on two sides, Dr Martin Luther King Jr Blvd on the South, and 15th Ave on the East.
