Residents of Exeter

The residents of Exeter enjoy living in a city that has a strong reputation for being the ideal place to live, work, and play. The small town farming community in southern San Joaquin Valley, provides an atmosphere of community not often found today. In the shadow of the landmark water tower, Exeter boasts a scenic beauty, thriving business community, and rich heritage. Exeter is cleaner, safer and more prosperous than most towns in California’s farm belt because people here take care of each other.

Exeter has been the birthplace of artists, authors, two Nevada Governors, business entrepreneurs, baseball greats, and many hard-working residents.

Named “one of America’s prettiest painted places,” Exeter’s buildings are adorned with murals depicting its colorful past. Currently, there are 24 murals, the most recent of which commemorates the city’s centennial.

Exeter boasts a 100-year agricultural history. It is the home of the Emperor grape, a plump, seeded variety of table grapes. Every fall, the residents come together for the Emperor Grape Festival, enjoying a parade, entertainment, great food, and the company of other residents. The Fall festival is one of many annual events held in Exeter.
The downtown streets are lined with vibrant small businesses including antique stores, specialty shops, services, restaurants, book stores, all locally owned.

Exeter’s public school system is dedicated to academic excellence and quality education. And after school, kids from high school flood the streets to get ice cream and stacks at the Frosty King and participate in a variety of sports activities at one of the city’s parks.
