The Greeneway

-A A +A
Early 1930s. Adjacent to St. Paul's Parish House

This landscaped path was given to St. Paul's Church in 1944 by the Greene family. Stones carved by Newport sculptor John Howard Benson name the rectors of St. Paul's. The path provides an arch of greenery as a transition from densely packed Main Street to the church with its open surround of fields and marshlands.
