The Hunsberger Family Association
Family reunions are normally held annually on the third Saturday in August at the Highland Park Camp Meeting Ground, 415 Highland Park Road, Sellersville, PA 18960. The first map below shows where Sellersville is situated in relation to neighboring towns and to Philadelphia. The second map shows the Sellersville-Perkasie area in greater detail, with the Highland Park Camp Meeting Ground underscored in red.
The reunions feature contests, prizes, a cake walk, and displays of old photographs and documents about family and area history. At the reunions you can buy a copy of the 3-volume Hunsberger family book, while supplies last. Also available for purchase are mugs, T-shirts, and other items featuring the Hunsberger family crest designed by Byron K. Hunsberger.
At our reunions we usually hold a BAKE SALE. Any donations of baked goods are welcomed. Please keep in mind that small items (bags of 6-12 cookies) tend to sell better than large items (a whole cake or pie).
If you need a place to stay, there are four motels immediately off the PA Turnpike on Rt 663. In recent years these places have generally charged about $99 per night, but if you have a large group coming we may be able to arrange a discount -- call Sylvia at 215-380-3874. The four motels are:
In addition, there may be space available right at the Highland Park Campground where the reunion is held. When last we checked a few years back, cottages were $20 per night, dormitory rentals were $5 per person per night, and a camp site was $10 per night. Contact the Campground by mail in advance, at 415 Highland Park Road, Sellersville, PA 18960.
