More About Dunwoody
The community was established in the 1830s named after Maj. Charles Dunwody. No, that is not a typo, an extra "o" was added to the incorrect spelling on a banknote but the community name stuck. Dunwoody is home to one of the most historical buildings dates back to 1829, the Ebenezer Primitive Baptist Church on the corner of Roberts Drive and Spalding Drive and also home to one of the city's oldest cemeteries. Once the railroad was established, Dunwoody developed into a small Crossroads community which grew and prospered throughout the 1900s. However, Dunwoody still was not an incorporated city, not up until 2006, which is a study conducted by the Carl Vinson Institute of Government of the University of Georgia to determine how feasible it would be to incorporate Dunwoody. Critics said that it would take away a great deal of tax revenue for the rest of the county but citizens promoted the effort. And finally, in 2008, the bill of incorporation was passed by the Senate and the house and on December 1 2008 after a three-year movement, Dunwoody officially became a city.
Dunwoody has a variety of districts and neighborhoods within the city such as Dunwoody Village, Perimeter Center, Georgetown, Williamsburg commercial district, Tilly Mill, Peachtree Corners, and Winters Chapel. Each of these communities features their own ambiance and bring historic charm to the city. A trail system connects many of these communities such as the Georgetown Gateway, Dunwoody Trailway, the Perimeter Multi-modal Trails and the Winters Chapel Corridor Multiuse Trail. For those that like walking, jogging, and biking, you can literally see the entire town via this trail system.
In addition to the trail system, Dunwoody has an active arts and culture scene, film and television highlights, shopping, music and entertainment festivals and venues, health and wellness spas, golf, outdoor entertainment and much more. It's been touted as one of the top five best places to live in the county and receives excellent scores for schools, families and diversity.
Dunwoody is part of the DeKalb County school system and operates five elementary schools, one middle school, and one high school. The Dunwoody Christian school is also a private school in the area and there are several secondary education campuses in Dunwoody such as the Georgia State University, American Intercontinental University, Troy University, and the Art Institute of Atlanta.
