It is located at the bottom of Lake Keowee and borders the west side of Lake Hartwell. It began at the intersection of the Blue Ridge, Atlanta, and Charlotte Air Railroad line and was a major hub for marketing and shipping cotton harvested throughout the area after the Civil War. It continues today as a community that supports small business. In April 2015, it was ranked the #1 city to start a business in South Carolina. According to NerdWallet, businesses in Seneca make $600,000 more annual than the average South Carolina business.
