During the late colonial period, the town was on the Great War Path connecting French and British colonies, but few battles were fought in the town.

The town of Dresden was formed from the town of Fort Ann in 1806.

The town was first settled in 1784. The early industries included lumbering and maple syrup preparation.

The completion of the Champlain Canal in 1823 aided the economic development of the area.
