Susan M. Connell's Legacy

Susan M. Connell left an indelible mark on Newport. Her volunteerism, generosity and vision literally transformed the way the downtown looks. As a member of NRPS, Susan led the effort to transform the downtown and coordinated the streetscape project in the center square area of Newport. In addition to the streetscape project, Susan assisted with Canal Day, house tours and other events sponsored by NRPS.
