W. Third St.

Third St. was name for its position three streets from the Fox River. This is by far the shortest street in the Old Third Ward.

Amazingly, the five homes that exist today, all built around 1890, are the same five homes that were on this street in 1925.

From Morrow and Gillett's Appleton city directory, for 1889-90:
THIRD, 371 State, west to Story, seventh south of College av, numbers from 1000 to 1180.

In 1925 a new system of numbering structures in the city of Appleton was adopted. In this directory both the new and old street numbers are given. In addition, College Ave. was designated the dividing line between north and south, and Oneida St. was the east-west divider.

From Wright's Appleton city directory 1925:
Third W - From 719 S State w to Story, 7 s W College av
