History & History Related Items

Exeter history:

Exeter was the Revolutionary War capital and an original copy of the Declaration of Independence was found in the Cincinnati House, later renamed the Independence Museum. Exeter is home to the very prestigious Phillips Exeter Academy and many of the large colonial homes in the downtown area are still owned and operated by the Academy. Exeter boasts a brick historical downtown and Swasey Park, which still showcases the original powderhouse from the Revolutionary War. In late June the Parkway is host to Revolutionary War days, complete with encampments and reenactments residents may participate in. Old, stone, "string bridges" link upper and lower downtown and the town Band plays free concerts in the original 1700's gazebo in the summer. Church bells from the many downtown multi-story, brick colonial style churches can be heard throughout the year and on Christmas Eve the streets of the town, branching out from the gazebo, are lit with thousands of sidewalk luminary candles placed that day by volunteers. The old Firehouse is now home to a Senior Center and fire museum and kids for generations have fished and skated at the Claypit pond in the west end of town.
