The John Wheelwright Society

Those who remember the Exeter Historical Society in their estate planning work to ensure that Exeter’s history will be collected, preserved and shared in perpetuity. To celebrate these special contributions, we have created the John Wheelwright Society, named after the English founder of our town. We are currently developing the program and will have more information in the near future.
