Host your Special Event at the Donaldson-Bannister Farm
If you’re hosting a special event and want it to be one of a kind, there’s only one historic venue in Dunwoody – the historic Donaldson-Bannister Farm. Located on 2.89 acres at the intersection of Chamblee-Dunwoody and Vermack Roads, the circa 1870 house is listed on both the Georgia and the National Register of Historic Places.
The home and the barn, which have been totally rehabilitated with modern modifications for comfort and ADA accessibility, are ideal for any variety of special events including:
- Anniversary celebrations
- Birthday parties
- Bridal showers
- Religious celebrations
- Holiday parties
- Club meetings
- Corporate meetings
The main house has a seating capacity of 50-60, with several rooms that can be easily transformed into meeting rooms, with one main meeting room or several smaller breakout meeting areas. Lovely outdoor spaces include an arbor, brick pavilion area, a flowing fountain immediately adjacent to the main house and an open meadow. The outside property, which is also available for private events, can accommodate 200 or more. Parking and shuttle arrangements are available for large events.
Come take a stroll around the grounds that are lush with ornamentals and hardwoods; relax with a picnic in the meadow; or enjoy a spot of tranquility on one of the benches surrounding the fountain. The Donaldson-Bannister Farm is officially open with the grounds accessible daily from sunrise to sunset. The house is open by appointment and can be booked for events such as weddings, corporate events, parties, religious celebrations, holiday parties, reunions, retreats and meetings of all kinds.
We have a new tent! Prior to the onset of the COVID virus, we purchased a 40’x40′ gable-style tent to cover the pavillion at the barn. It is now installed and with this new covered space, we are now able to host larger, socially distanced events – complete with string lights.
