Seneca Army Depot was first built in 1941 as the Seneca Ordnance Depot. This location took up over 10,000 acres. The military used the site as an ammunition storage and disposal site, and it became one of the largest employers in the area. After its closure in the 1990s, the county’s Industrial Development Agency took over the site.
