Both the community and township were named after George B. Dresbach, who founded the community and was a representative in the state legislature. The post office was established in 1858 as Dresbach City, then changed to Sherwood in 1864, then back to Dresbach in 1866. The community once had a station on the former Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railroad, a sawmill, and several brickyards, lead mines, and limestone and sandstone quarries.
