A MESSAGE FROM THE MAYOR

Hello from the Village of Seneca!

Welcome to Seneca, where you can "Find Your Connection".  Whether you are here to work, live or visit, the Village offers something for everyone!

Our Village is located approximately one hour from downtown Chicago; minutes from Interstate 80 and a short distance from Interstate 39.  Seneca is a river community that has several amenities...

The historic Illinois & Michigan Canal is located through the center of our downtown area.  The canal provides a great opportunity for photographers, hikers, joggers, nature lovers, bicyclists, snowmobilers and cross country skiers.  Adjacent to the canal is the Hogan Elevator which is the oldest remaining grain elevator and tours are provided through the Seneca Historical Guild, contact Village Hall for details.

The Village of Seneca also has a wonderful well-maintained community area named Crotty Park.  The park has two shelters, a baseball field, open grassy area and accomodates the disabled with handicapped parking and a paved sidewalk.  One area of interest is the Illinois LST (landing ship tank) memorial located at the flagpole in Crotty Park.  The granite memorial honors those who built and utilized the LST's during WWII, Korea and Vietnam.  Seneca was chosen by the Chicago Bridge & Iron Company as an operational shipyard from 1942-45.  Our Village has another landmark that I encourage you to visit...located on Route 170 across from the Seneca Library is the Veterans Memorial Wall monument.  The memorial honors all who have served their country during the various wars.

The Illinois River provides endless opportunities for family fun...the LST Memorial Boat Launch is free access to the river and includes courtesy docking, 2 lane launch ramps, picnic areas and three large shelters.  This area is currently open daily from 4:00am-10:00pm.  Stop by either our Crotty Park or the boat launch and enjoy a day of rest and relaxation...

There is more than one opportunity to become acquainted with the Village of Seneca, in addition to our newly updated website, we offer Facebook or Twitter.  Simply join us by clicking on the icons above, and become a fan...it is that simple!   Thank you for visiting our website and we hope you visit our community soon!

Sincerely,

David Spicer, Mayor
