— Isabella Cannon used to joke that the city of Raleigh never dedicated anything in her honor. However, that is about to change.

Theater in the Park will build a fountain in its front garden in honor of Raleigh's former mayor. Cannon died in February at the age of 93.

Theater in the Park is currently raising funds to help build the Isabella Cannon Memorial fountain. If you want to help, you can call Theater in the Park at
