Five Historic Black Places-- Part 1

From the Feb. 21, 2014, Preservation Nation Blog "Five Historic Places Where legends of Black History Have Left Their Mark" by Andy Grabel. //// 1. THE PAUL LAWRENCE DUNBAR HOUSE-- Dayton, Ohio. Featuring treasured books and original furniture. It also has a bicycle built for him by fellow Dayton residents Wilbur and Orville Wright. PAUL LAWRENCE DUNBAR (1872-1906) is a noted black poet and novelist. Much of his writings were based on the black dialect of the antebellum South. I know that many black schools in the South are named Dunbar. //// 2. GEORGE WASHINGTON CARVER NATIONAL MONUMENT-- in southwest Missouri, featuring his childhood home and the 3/4 mile Carver Nature Trail. //// --RoadDog
