Memories of Covid and 2020?
Help us preserve the Present for Tomorrow


We host educational opportunities for kids and adults all year long

We’re building a community that residents want to live in and their children want to come home to.

We believe people are happiest where they feel the greatest connection – not just to the past but also to the present and the future.  As the Dunwoody Preservation Trust (DPT), we do more than just save historic properties. We rehabilitate them so people can enjoy them now. We also host a range of community celebrations and educational events as well as Dunwoody’s only history camp. Our goal is to sustain our superior quality of life by preserving the past, celebrating the present and building the future. If this is the kind of community you want to live in, please join us.

Dunwoody Preservation Trust

Preserving the Past

Dunwoody Preservation Trust was born out of the efforts to save the Cheek-Spruill House, an historic Dunwoody landmark, from becoming a parking lot. Today the Dunwoody Farmhouse is the unofficial symbol of our city and site of our most cherished community celebrations. In 2018, the Donaldson-Bannister Farm, our most ambitious project, became a public park and special event venue.

Celebrating the Present

Throughout the year, we host community events that bring us together - from Apple Cider Days in the fall to Lemonade Days in the spring. The Cheek-Spruill house, the only property we actually own, is the site of Light Up Dunwoody and other public celebrations. And don’t forget to look for our wagon in the Dunwoody 4th of July Parade.

Building the Future

Happy communities connect their children to the community by teaching them its history and giving them ways to be a part of it. We offer educational opportunities for both kids and adults through Education Alive, school field trips, tours of our properties and activities for Scouts. Camp Flashback, our history camp, lets kids learn about our history by living it.
