Limerick, PA

Limerick, Pennsylvania is a jewel of a town ensconced in the southeastern corner of the state that is just over 30 miles from center city Philadelphia. Limerick shares its name with a city and county in Ireland from which one of its first settlers, William Evans, originally hailed. Limerick's population has almost tripled in the 25 years since the 1990 census, from just over 6,000 residents to nearly 20,000, and with that population expansion has come a parallel increase in lively community events, shopping centers and children-friendly parks and facilities. 

The town of Limerick is served by the Spring-Ford Area School District, which was formed in 1955 through the merger of two smaller districts. Spring-Ford is recognized as an excellent school district throughout the region, as it is the second largest school district serving Montgomery county yet has a drop-out rate over a point below the Pennsylvania state average. The school maintains an active presence in the Pennsylvania scholastic arts scene, and both its marching band and its choir ensembles have won accolades in recent years. 

Limerick is home to two entries on the National Register of Historic Places: the William and Mordecai Evans House, celebrated for its colonial log design and its brief time as George Washington's headquarters, and the Isaac Hunsberger House, home to the Limerick Township Historical Society. Although both sites are certainly tourist attractions, visitors are respectful and low-key and do not disturb the lives of the townspeople around them. 

The town's shopping scene has been bolstered by the recent addition of the Philadelphia Premium Outlets open-air mall in Limerick. The center has over 150 outlet stores and is a shopping destination for people from surrounding regions in Pennsylvania and even as far away as New Jersey and Delaware. 

Public transit is not extensive in Limerick, but SEPTA operates the number 93 bus that passes through the region, and Pottstown Area Rapid Transit operates a series of busing and paratransit services for residents. Limerick is also easily accessible by car and is intersected by several highways, including U.S. Route 422. This formerly sleepy town in southeastern Pennsylvania is steadily growing in prominence and precedence in the region!
