Welcome to Appleton, Wisconsin's
Historic Old Third Ward

Congratulations to Old Third Ward resident Jon Corelis for being chosen one of the six winners in the 2014 Appleton Sidewalk Poetry Program. We hope to see Jon's words emblazoned on a city sidewalk soon.

Look not down on me,
while you see the sidewalk,
I look at the sky.
