Dresden is a town in Lincoln County, Maine, United States that was incorporated in 1794.

The town was originally settled in 1752 under the name Frankfort by French and German Huguenots. First called Frankfort, so that the new French immigrants could pretend to be German, the town was incorporated as Pownalborough in 1760, when Lincoln County was created in the Maine District of Massachusetts. Pownalborough included the Town of Wiscasset, which was soon set off on its own as the shire town of the county. When the present territory was incorporated in 1794, Lincoln County Probate Judge Jonathan Bowman chose Dresden as the new name of the town because he liked the sound of it.

According to the US census, the town has a total area of 33.2 square miles, of which, 30.6 square miles is land and 2.5 square miles (7.60%) is water. Dresden is drained by the Kennebec River and Eastern River, which merges into the former at the southern tip of Green Point and the south eastern side of Swan Island.

As of the 2000 census, there were 1,625 people, 642 households, and 455 families residing in the town. The population density was 53.0 people per square mile. There were 739 housing units at an average density of 24.1 per square mile.
