Dresden Wedding Resources (more information)


Dresden, NY
History

The region was known as "Kashong" (or "Kashanquash") to the natives and was part of the Phelps and Gorham Purchase.

At the end of the 18th Century, followers of Jemima Wilkinson, a religious leader, began to settle in the area. They called the area "Jerusalem" and founded their first community near the present site of Dresden.

Dresden was founded in 1811 as a planned community. The Village of Dresden was incorporated in 1867.

Dresden was the eastern terminus for the former Crooked Lake Canal, which operated from 1833 to 1877. This canal linked the area through other lake canals to the Erie Canal.
