Project Overview
Newport’s Potter School was designed by architect William Crandall in the 1880s as a three-story Colonial Revival brick building and was opened as a public school in 1882.  The design for the Potter School converted it into seven – one, two and three bedroom residence units. Many of the original finish details were retained and incorporated into the interior design, with each unit having its own unique plan.
