History

The Dunwoody area was pioneered in the early 1830s and is named for Major Charles Dunwody (1828–1905), an extra "o" was added with the incorrect spelling of the name on a banking note.[7][8] Charles Dunwody originally returned to Roswell after fighting in the Civil War, in which he fought for the secession of the Confederate states.
