Our Society & The Hunsberger House
The Limerick Township Historical Society was founded in April 1984 by the former Limerick Township Bicentennial Committee. While one of its initial goals was to publish a township history, which it did in 1987, the society has continued to grow in its 25 years of existence.
The mission of our society is to:
- Preserve the history, lore and historical heritage of Limerick Township;
- Create an interest in Township history and heritage, especially among Township youth;
- Restore buildings and areas within the Township to original character;
- Provide a repository for Township memorabilia, i.e., deeds, pictures, genealogies, historical papers, documents, books, artifacts, articles of labor and other areas of Township tradition; and
- Advise persons, firms or entities seeking assistance on restoration projects.
The building that has been home to the Limerick Township Historical Society since 1987, the Isaac Tyson Hunsberger House, was built in 1827. This building was also the first in the township to be placed on the National Register of Historic Places, as it was on June 22, 2000. The following are views of the Hunsberger house and adjacent buildings on the property:
