The Old Third Ward Neighborhood Association provides scholarships to high school students who wish to pursue studies in historic preservation, urban planning, local history and other related subjects. The Association also brings the neighborhood together for an annual dinner (in January) and an end-of-summer picnic (in September.) We also maintain the Old Third Ward Website, publish a popular walking tour brochure of the area, and stage periodic home tours. Please help the Association continue these worthy practices.
