Exeter is a community for which “Small Town Charm” is neither an exaggerated nor overused description, but simply the first thing that comes to mind for those who visit for the first time.
Founded in the pioneering days of Central California agricultural expansion and railroad development, Exeter has long been known as a community with strong family values, a history of thoughtful development, and a reputation as one of the most desirable places to live, work, and raise a family.
Situated at the foot of the Sierra Nevada foothills, along the primary route into Sequoia National Park, Exeter is a perfect blend of attractive residential neighborhoods, a clean and vibrant downtown, and commercial ventures that support the area known as the Citrus Capital of the World.
Building upon a strong downtown retail foundation, the residents of Exeter established a mural program that has become the envy of other cities, and well established as a destination location for those who appreciate art in public places.
A mild climate, a low crime rate, and strong property values within the region all contribute to a community that attracts business, tourism, and people looking for the ideal place to call home.
