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 our city, DPT seeks to educate the public on the rich history of Dunwoody and to archive its stories and photographs.  Public and private donations, as well as two annual fundraisers, Lemonade Days and Apple Cider Days, support these efforts.

Mission Statement:

DPt’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.
