Guest Cottage Fundraiser

Saving the Caretaker’s Cottage

Dunwoody Preservation Trust, in partnership with the City of Dunwoody, is making great progress on the rehabilitation of the structures on the Donaldson-Bannister property.  The Main House has been stabilized, windows have been replaced and interior improvements are underway.  The new Barn addition containing public ADA bathrooms, a multi-purpose room and an outdoor paved terrace has been completed and looks amazing.

The next building to be rehabilitated is the Guest Cottage.  Located behind the Main House, the modest structure was built by Mrs. Lois Patillo Bannister in the early 1930s, and was used as a guesthouse.  Time and neglect have taken their toll, and the cottage desperately needs stabilization and renovation.  Funds are currently being raised, and plans are being finalized for the work necessary to return the Guest Cottage to an active role at the Donaldson-Bannister House and Gardens.
