Dresden is a quiet community. Not a lot of crime. Great place to raise a family. I’ve lived here my entire life. It’s one of those small country kinda towns where you know just about everyone. The local school has a great marching band. Plus all their athletics do pretty well. I like the country living and the closeness that a small town has to offer.

Dresden is a quaint little town, full of wonderful people. The local high school has a good football team and the whole town rallies behind them. If I had to suggest to a new family with children, I'd say they move to Dresden.
Dresden is a great place to live. It is a family community that values children and families. It is a quiet town, but everything that happens in town is known by everyone.
