First settled around the turn of the 18th century, the township was incorporated about 1722.

The Isaac Hunsberger House, a National Register of Historic Places Property, is home to the Limerick Township Historical Society; 545 West Ridge Pike. The house, ca. 1827 and extended and modified ca. 1893, is a 2 1/2 story Georgian, 5-bay brick building with Victorian alterations. In 1813 Isaac Hunsberger purchased 61 acres where he set up farming. The house is unusual in that it is an early use combining brick and masonry, especially the flemish-bond brick facade. It's the only brick-front, stone house found in the area.
