Someone should whip up the history of this neighborhood and why it is named so. Would it have anything to do with the Cold War? Originally third world meant a country that was neutral during the Cold War. In either case St. Mary's University recognizes the name so it can be found in one other place besides Google Maps: St. Mary's University Neighborhood Revitalization Project

St. Mary's University Neighborhood Revitalization Project

So the neighborhood is named "Third World Neighborhood" or are they refering to the area as a Third World Neighborhood?

The St. Mary's University Neighborhood Revitalization Project was established in 2007 in response to a call-to-action by University president Charles L. Cotrell, Ph.D., for the University to be more actively involved in community outreach, development and improvement, and to collaborate with our neighbors to revitalize and beautify the areas surrounding the University.

The project's 50-plus members make up the Task Force, and together with neighbors and business proprietors, they focus on revitalizing commercial transformation, housing rehabilitation, and infrastructure and quality of life improvements.

The project is being conducted in phases. Phase 1 includes the geographic area that makes up the University Park Neighborhood Association. Portions of neighborhoods included in Phases 2A and 2B are Jefferson/Woodlawn Lake, Loma Vista and Memorial Heights and in 3A and 3B, Third World, Loma Park and Prospect Hill. Take a closer look at these phase areas on the revitalization map.

I'm wondering if that might have been the "third ward" and over time someone misread it for third world. Back in the 1890's my grandfather had a dairy farm in the area and he was a lay minister for the Presbyterian Church in that section. Back then it was a nice neighborhood.
