Located at the intersection of the Blue Ridge Railroad and the newly built Atlanta and Charlotte Air Line Railroad, Seneca City, as it was originally known, was named for a nearby Native American village and the Seneca River. Air Line Railroad locating engineers, A. W. Thompson and J. J. Norton, purchased this land from Colonel Brown of Anderson. The center of town was marked by a stake at the intersection of the railroads and present-day Townville Street. Lots were divided and sold by auction on August 14, 1873. The town received its charter on March 14, 1874 and in 1908, the town’s name was officially shortened to Seneca. We are actively seeking additional information to add to this entry.
