Located just ten miles north of Atlanta, Dunwoody is a family-friendly urban destination that is easy to access and easy to get around. Dunwoody residents live in a variety of homes. Some have Colonial-style architecture, some are traditional two-story brick homes on generous half-acre lots, and others are swim & tennis communities with homes in brick, stone and cedar shake. Dunwoody has become a place where residents can enjoy a combination of outdoor parks, family events and abundant dining and shopping.
The Cherokee Indian tribe originally inhabited Dunwoody before it officially became a city in 2008. Ebenezer Primitive Baptist Church is one of Dunwoody’s most historic buildings dating back to 1829. It is still active and home to one of the city’s oldest cemeteries where many of Dunwoody’s founding fathers are buried.
