Vasquez de Coronado is said to have reached the Kansas-Nebraska border somewhere in the vicinity of Seneca. He described the land as rich and fertile with huge herds of buffalo and abundant deer.

Seneca plays host to a myriad of industries and businesses and is home to about 2,500 citizens. These citizens' needs are well served by the town's many service organizations, churches, businesses, and governmental agencies and divisions. A new multi-million dollar hospital takes care of all the community's health needs, while the local volunteer fire department, widely recognized for its dependability and skill, insures the safety of Seneca's residents in over 100 years of service.
