County Information
Located in the northern part of the state, it was founded April 1, 1820 and named after the Seneca Indian Tribe.
Seneca County was originally part of the territory set aside for Native Americans by the Treaty of Greeneville.
Its county seat is Tiffin
The county was barely inhabited until the 1830s, but by 1860 its population had massively increased to about half the current number of inhabitants. It grew slowly from thereon. Currently, almost 80% of the county's total area is agricultural land. Some 10% is covered by forest, and the rest is mostly taken up by built-up areas and to a slightly lesser extent by pastureland.
