Dunwoody Preservation Trust (DPT) was chartered as a 501(c)(3) in 1995 with the purpose of preserving the history and heritage of Dunwoody.  In addition to saving and rehabilitating historic properties and cemeteries in the city, DPT seeks to educate the public on the rich history of Dunwoody and its founders, and to archive its stories and photographs.  Public and private donations, as well as two major fundraisers, Lemonade Days and Apple Cider Days, help to support these efforts.

Mission Statement:

The Dunwoody Preservation Trust’s mission is to identify and save the historic resources and heritage of Dunwoody, and to create opportunities for community members to interact with and understand our city’s history in order to bridge generations and strengthen the ties that bind together our City.

Vision Statement:

To create the optimal network between our community, public sector and non-profit sector for the promotion of local historic preservation.
