Dresden is a thriving rural community of 3000 offering 200+ businesses and services, schools and amenities that create our ever expanding residential development.
Located along the Sydenham River, Dresden has long been a commercial hub in the north of the Municipality of Chatham-Kent. Proximity to Hwy 401 continues to attract industry, as the local specialty farming supports ConAgra food processing plant. Home to Josiah Henson, Dresden was known as ‘The Terminus of the Underground Railroad’ and his homestead is a national Historical Site: Uncle Tom’s Cabin.
