Dunwoody is a northern suburb of Atlanta that is populated with roughly 48,000 residents. Located in DeKalb County, the city wasn’t incorporated until late 2008. Dunwoody is a popular destination for both business and home owners alike. Several large companies are headquartered here, like the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, InterContinental Hotel Group, and State Farm.

Quick History

Despite only being incorporated in 2008, this community has a much long past. In the early 1830s, Dunwoody was named for Major Charles Dunwody, with an extra “o” added later on an incorrectly spelled banking note. The town was successful due to the Roswell Railroad addition in later years but continued to thrive even after it shut down in the 1920s. The area remained most residential until the addition of the Perimeter Mall in 1971.

Perimeter Mall is an upscale shopping mall with over 1.5 million square feet of retail space. Not only can you find over 200 stores inside but the mall features large restaurants on the exterior that cater to all types of dining preferences and budgets. Perimeter Mall is also accessible by the Dunwoody MARTA station, making it an easy destination to reach for those without use of a vehicle.
