About This City
Because the town is on land of the former Buffalo Creek Reservation, it was not open to white settlement until the mid-19th century. In 1851, the town of Seneca was formed from parts of the towns of Cheektowaga and Hamburg. The town changed the name to West Seneca in 1852 to avoid confusion with another location in the state (Seneca, New York in Ontario County). In 1909 the area immediately south of Buffalo split from West Seneca, becoming the city of Lackawanna. The Eaton Site was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979. Former NFL player Justin Strzelczyk came from West Seneca, as well as the rock band Every Time I Die.
West Seneca offers a community rich suburban lifestyle. The town and local businesses sponsor a large number of family oriented community events and festivals. The town has an extensive system of recreational facilities including 15 town parks, an indoor skating rink, swimming center, youth community center and a large soccer complex. The town is home to the Charles E. Burchfield Nature & Art Center. West Seneca is also the location of the 7.2 million dollar state of the art Southtowns Family YMCA Facility that opened in 2003. A recreational bicycle and pedestrian trail tentatively named the Seneca Creek Pathway is planned. West Seneca is home to a large number of organized recreational leagues and clubs including; West Seneca Youth Baseball, West Seneca Little Loop Football and Cheerleading,West Seneca Girls Softball Association, West Seneca Youth Hockey Association, West Seneca Soccer Club, West Seneca Competitive Swim and RGC All Star Cheerleading.
