Paul Laurence Dunbar (June 27, 1872 – February 9, 1906) was an American poet and author who was best known in his lifetime for his dialect work and his use of metaphor and rhetoric, often in a conversational style. In his short career he produced twelve books of poetry, four novels, four books of short stories, and wrote the lyrics to many popular songs. Dunbar became the first African American to support himself financially through his writing. You can visit the Paul Laurence Dunbar House Historic Site every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm (closed on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year's Day). Tours take place throughout the day and admission is free. The last tour is at 3:30 pm.
