Exeter

Like many New England towns, it comes with loads of charm and history.

Welcome to Exeter

 
A historic college town with natural beauty and charm.
 
Located on the Exeter River, right by the Squamscott River Falls, sits the community of Exeter in southeastern New Hampshire. Like many New England towns, it comes with loads of charm and history. A little more than 10,000 people call Exeter their home. 
 
The town became known for shipbuilding in about 1725, but today it's known for leather manufacturing, electronics, and handgun production. Many historical sites remain in Exeter, including the Gilman Harrison House of 1690.
 
Exeter experiences all four seasons, but the winters and summers are very temperate. It doesn't get much colder than 20 degrees in the winter, and the summer temperatures rarely go above 81 degrees.
 

What to Love

 
  • Endless natural wonders
  • Historical charm
  • Collegiate town

If you want to savor a meal, you need to put Otis on your list of places to try. Located in the Otis Sleeper Jewelry Building, the space retains much of the features and architectural charm of 1910. Otis serves dinner five nights a week and frequently changes its farm-to-table offerings. The intimate dining room overlooks the famous bandstand, or you may dine at the chef's  counter.

You do need to prove you're at least 21 if you want to sample beer at the Powder Keg Beer and Chili Festival, also held at Swasey Parkway. Of course, you'll find plenty of beer and chili samples to feast on, but they also provide non-alcoholic beverages and other food. The festival takes place as scheduled, rain or shine.
 
Through TEAM, other arts and music festivals occur throughout the year. TEAM focuses on giving local talent a chance to shine. Their focus lies heavily in community building and working closely with local businesses to serve Exeter's citizens.
 

Schools

 
Exeter provides excellent public schools, but indeed Phillips Exeter Academy represents the most famous of its private school offerings. This prep school started in 1781.
