In the 17th century, settlers who entered the area known as "Vacant Lands" created homesteads and farms. Later, villages grew in the lowlands where streams were located, providing a source of power for the mills and small factories. Grist mills, saw mills, stores, blacksmith shops, warp factories, flannel mills and cotton mills sprang up throughout the villages. Exterer is primarily a rural community. The unique elegant and charming countryside consists of wooded hills, clear streams and lakes, and a multitude of wildlife.
