The name of the town, in classic American style, is an acronym; it stands for South Eastern COal Company. Like many in the area, this was a coal mining town: and the old mine can still be seen.

The heart of the town, for once, is not city hall, or a large church, or a Civil War historic site: it's the old company store, now the Highland Winery.

Just the same, Seco does have its churches: they're an attractive group, so even if my page isn't much, the photos are good.

You may also find it useful to read my diary entries for Nov. 25 and 26, 2005, which include a couple more photos as well.
