History & History Related Items

The Exeter area was well known to the ancient Native American Indians who lived in the local oat forest. But it wasnít until the late 1800ís when the railroad came to town. Land was purchased from a local man, John Firebaugh, by a man from the Southern Pacific Railroad, D.W. Parkhurst. Parkhurst native home was in Exeter, England, so it was easy for him to name the new area Exeter after his hometown. The rich agricultural heritage of Exeter began at this time with the planting of many fruit trees and vines. Exeter incorporated in 1911. Not only agriculture, but cattle ranching also made its mark in the local economy, the Gill Cattle Company, casting the largest shadow. It once contained over six million acres.
