What is in Seneca?

The Village of Seneca has a lot to offer to visitors to our area. 


The I&M Canal State Trail provides a great adventure for nature lovers, historians, photographers, hikers, bicyclists, joggers and snowmobilers.  Visitors can follow this 61.5 mile state trail and enjoy many scenic views of the canal.


Seneca is located on the scenic Illinois River.  The river provides for many activities such as boating, fishing, and picturesque sight seeing.  (The sunsets can be spectacular.)


In addition to several outstanding marinas, Seneca also has a wonderful free public boat launch with access to the river, shelters for picnic lunches and a safe, clean dock.


Crotty Park has a shelter that can be reserved for family reunions, graduation parties, birthday parties, etc.  There is also a playground, soccer, and baseball field.


We also have numerous historical attractions such as the Hogan Grain Elevator on the I&M Canal, Seneca Area History Museum, LST Memorial in Crotty Park, the Veterans Memorial Wall at the Seneca Library.

SGS Pre-School Screenings

Information provided by Dianne Bushman: Preschool screening for all Seneca Grade School District 170 residents who are 3 or 4 years of age, will be held on Wednesday, February 21st and Thursday, February 22nd 2018. The screenings will be scheduled from 9:00 am to 2:30 pm. All children who will attend Preschool during the 2018-19 school year must participate in the screening. To be eligible for preschool, a child must be three years old on or before September 1, 2018. Preference will be given to those children who are older should space be an issue. Although any preschool age child may make an appointment for a screening, only students living in Seneca Grade School District 170 may register for classes. A birth certificate from the court house, NOT a hospital certificate, will be required at the time of screening/preregistration. A physical, dental exam and immunization record must be completed before school begins in the fall. Forms will be given at the screening. Early screening of new kindergarten and preschool students allows the district to organize the preschool and kindergarten classes and transportation schedules. Parents will also need to attend the new student registration on July 27th. To schedule your child's appointment or any questions concerning the screening, please contact Rhonda at (815) 357-8744 option 2, Monday through Friday from 8:30 to 3:30 pm. Please share this information with friends, family and neighbors.
