Centennial Park was dedicated on November 20, 2005. The park provides a view of the beautiful Suncook River and has four picnic tables and grills for use by the general public.

This site was originally the site of White's Dam and a mill, the first dam having been built by Josiah White in the late 1700's. The dam shown in the photos below were constructed by the Exeter Manufacturing Company in 1934 and were severely damaged in the horrific flood of May 1936. What remained of the dam collapsed and was washed downstream in 1953 in the spring floods.
