Seneca is a relatively young town having celebrated its centennial in 1973. Seneca’s historic district contains a variety of architectural designs which blend together to produce a cohesive and homogenous unit. Included in this setting are examples of late 19th century domestic architecture, pre-World War I dwellings, houses of the mid-1920s, and church architecture of the first half of the twentieth century. Architectural styles and types include Victorian, Classical Revival, Bungalow, Tudor Revival, and Four-Square. The district is made up of two areas, which together include three churches and twenty houses. Seneca’s historic district is an excellent example of the growth and development of a community. Many of the structures nominated belonged to the leading families of early Seneca. Listed in the National Register December 31, 1974; Boundary increase April 23, 1987.
