Sullivan's expedition, which passed along the banks of Seneca Lake in 1779, first brought the area to the attention of settlers. Many of the soldiers were so attracted by the beauty and fertility of the lands that they settled there after the war. The first settler, Job Smith, settled in Seneca Falls in 1787, and the second, Andrew Dunlap, settled in Ovid in 1789. After 1790, settlement progressed rapidly. The county was part of the extreme western portion of the Military Tract.
Seneca County is a half-shire with the county seats located at Ovid and Waterloo. Other towns in Seneca County are Covert, Fayette, Junius, Lodi, Romulus, Seneca Falls, Tyre, and Varick.
