Paul Laurence Dunbar State Memorial

Explore Paul Laurence Dunbar's home, which still includes many original furnishings. Dunbar was the first African-American poet to gain international recognition. The house and interpretive center contain his original Remington typewriter, a bicycle - given to him by the Wright Brothers - and more pieces from the writer's life.

 

 

The house was the first state memorial to commemorate an African-American. Public tours are led by interpretive guides.
