"Located on the Liberty Bell Trail"
Chamber of Commerce.
Sellersville's name came from town founder, Samuel Sellers. The previous name was Sellers Tavern. Legend has it that soldiers carrying the Liberty Bell away from Philadelphia and attacking British soldiers in 1777 stopped at the Washington House tavern on their way to a secret hiding place in Allentown.
Starting in the 1740's, the Borough was a main stop on the stagecoach routes to Philadelphia. In 1931, daily Telephone service was installed in the Borough.
