Previously known as Dreshertown, Dresher is an unincorporated community within the Upper Dublin Township in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania that is home to over 5,600 people. Upper Dublin Township was originally part of a 1684 land grant from William Penn called “Dublin.” The grant included land that is now Abington Township and part of Philadelphia. Quaker families were among the earliest settlers of the Township. By the middle of the 18th century many German families had moved into the area. The main occupation in Upper Dublin in the early days was farming. The land was also rich in minerals and limestone was mined in what is now Dresher. Limekiln Pike was built in 1693 to transport limestone to the Philadelphia markets and has been lengthened through the years to cross the Township and continue into Bucks County. One of the most important historical buildings in the Township is the Emlen House on Pennsylvania Avenue near Camphill Road. George Washington had his headquarters there during a skirmish with the British in late 1777 before he moved his army on to Valley Forge. The population grew around the settlements of Fitzwatertown, Dreshertown, Jarrettown, Maple Glen, Three Tuns and Rose Valley.
