Exeter’s unique downtown is home to 26 murals relating to the history of Exeter and its surrounding areas. The most recent mural was dedicated on the 100th anniversary of the City of Exeter in March of 2011. For details visit our Mural Gallery.
One of the newest additions to Exeter’s heritage is the Exeter Museum which is located next to Exeter Art Gallery. This historic 1913 former Mt. Whitney power house is an interactive experience into Exeter’s past. Admission to the Gallery and Museum is free. Please visit their Exeter Historical Museum Facebook page for more information.
There are several events that take place in the City of Exeter. We have the Exeter Fall Festival in October. Starting at the end of November we have the Exeter Holiday Open House. The Exeter Chamber of Commerce has further information regarding all of our annual events.
Exeter has many parks. City Park, located at Chestnut and E Streets, has a child play area, picnic area, horse shoes, wading pool (seasonal), restrooms, library and a Carnegie Building / Senior Center. This park is also the venue for Exeter’s free summer concert series. For more information about Exeter parks, see the Recreation Department.
Our newest park, the Exeter Bark Park was a community-wide effort lead by the Friends of Residential Exeter Dogs and is located on F street across from City Hall.
