About Exeter

EXETER is an historic town of about 15,000 people located just a few miles west of the popular Atlantic seacoast. Exeter offers much to its residents including a highly acclaimed preparatory school, a renowned hospital, parks, golf courses and much, much more. Exeter is an industrious town that hasn't forgotten its rural roots and has great plans for the future.

Exeter's rich history can be found everywhere you look in this quiet, yet commercially driven community. Historic buildings line the downtown area and the old brick mills have been converted into condominiums overlooking the Squamscott River and the old public library has been turned into the Exeter's Historical Society building. But history is not all there is in Exeter. The Exeter Hospital offers leading-edge medical services for most of the surrounding communities and has plans for further expansion in an effort to maintain top-notch healthcare for the growing seacoast area. Phillips Exeter Academy is one of the nation's best-known college preparatory schools accepting students from all over the world. Downtown Exeter boasts fine dining, the historic Ioka Theater, shopping and many other services for your needs and pleasures. The Swasey Parkway is a beautiful municipal park built beside the Squamscott River on land once occupied by wharfs and warehouses but now giving visitors and residents alike a wonderful place to bring the family for a picnic beside the river. Exeter also has bicycle and cross-country skiing trails, several more parks with playground equipment, museums, baseball, football and soccer fields, tennis courts, the Exeter Country Club (right on the river), indoor ice skating, camping, fishing, boating even bowling. With no less than seven state routes in and out of Exeter and I-95 just three miles away, Exeter is convenient to just about anywhere you'd want to drive.
