1934 4th Street NW
The former LeDroit Park home of revered poet Paul Laurence Dunbar has hit the market.
Dunbar and his wife Alice purchased 1934 4th Street NW (map) not long after they married in 1898. The couple lived together in the home until divorcing in 1902. Dunbar passed away in 1906 at the age of 34.
During his life, Paul Laurence Dunbar published 12 volumes of poetry, in addition to a play and a series of novels and short stories. He is widely considered to be one of the first African-American poets to achieve national recognition.
The three-bedroom home at 1934 4th Street NW looks a lot different on the inside that it did a century ago, and it underwent its most recent renovation in 2010.
