Dunbar House [OH]

This Italianate turn-of-the-century structure was the final home of the poet Paul Laurence Dunbar. It exhibits his literary treasures, many of his personal items and his family's furnishings. During his short lifetime Dunbar became known as the poet laureate of African Americans. Drawing on his observations of society and the experience of his parents—both former slaves—he gave voice to the social dilemma of disenfranchised people of his day and became a proclaimer of black dignity.

The site offers exhibits and tours.
