Dresden, NY

The Town of Dresden in New York's Washington County is bordered by Lake Champlain on the east and Lake George on the west. Its location allows visitors to choose whether they want to hike the highest mountain on Lake George (Black Mountain), go boating on Lake Champlain, or do something in between.

New York State Route 22 runs north-south through Dresden, linking the communities of Whitehall and Ticonderoga.

Because of its location, Dresden is a very popular tourist destination. Visitors can enjoy year-round fishing, along with the wide variety of seasonal activities.

Although agriculture and maple sugaring were once extremely popular in the town, today there is just one farm and one syrup-producing orchard. Lumbering is another industry with roots in Dresden, and logs are still sent into pulpwood production outside of town or to Ticonderoga's International Paper Company.
