Bertha Lee Strickland Cultural Museum is Oconee County's one-of-a-kind cultural exhibit museum focusing on the rich, sometimes turbulent history, culture, and contributions of local African Americans. The museum's exhibits and events blend technology and tradition to create a meaningful and educational experience for all ages.
The Bertha Lee Strickland Cultural Museum is owned and operated by the City of Seneca. Seneca, South Carolina has a mayor-council form of government with eight council members and mayor elected at large for staggered four year terms. Seneca’s history started in 1873 with an intersection of two railroad lines and our incorporation as a town. Since that time Seneca has become a growing community of families and friends.
With a population of about 8,000, Seneca offers the community atmosphere along with the closeness of downtown businesses.
