Like many Atlanta communities, Dunwoody was established in the early 1830s by its namesake, Charles Dunwody, a Civil War veteran. By 1881, the Roswell Railroad had laid down tracks straight through Dunwoody, running from Chamblee Dunwoody Road to the Chattahoochee River.
The railroad quickly elevated Dunwoody into one of the busiest and most popular areas of Atlanta, and the community thrived even after Roswell Railroad closed.
Numerous churches, schools, and other businesses opened during this run that are still around today, including the Ebenezer Primitive Baptist Church, Dunwoody Elementary School, and several cemeteries.
