Seneca is an unincorporated community in Montgomery County, Maryland, United States.

The Seneca Schoolhouse, a small one-room schoolhouse of red sandstone, was built in 1866 to educate the children of Seneca's farmers, C&O canal workers, and the stone cutters who worked at the Seneca Quarry. The schoolhouse is located in Poolesville, Maryland. Operating as the Seneca Schoolhouse Museum, it provides tours to schoolchildren so that they can experience a typical school day as it would have been on March 13, 1880.
