The building we now know as Sellersville Theater has a rich and colorful history that is directly linked to its neighbor, The Washington House. Over 200 years ago The Washington House began as a small farmhouse built on an ancient Lenni Lenape trail. Owned by Mr. Jan Jenson, it sat on land deeded from William Penn to Mr. Thomas Freame, who transferred 102 acres to Jenson in 1735. The property was later purchased by Samuel Sellers who enlarged the building and made it into a tavern. Henceforth, both the hotel and the town were known as Sellers Tavern. The site became a town center, serving as the first Post Office, hotel and stagecoach stop for the long journey between Bethlehem and Philadelphia.

“American Idol” winners and losers often appear locally touting their albums, but this week is the first time a winner and his runner-up are both in our area.
During the fifth season of the popular TV singing competition, Taylor Hicks garnered more “Soul Patrol” groupies’ votes for his blue-eyed soul singing than Katharine McPhee could gather for her Broadway-meets-opera talents. Both artists have failed after their initial album releases, but have succeeded in other areas.
Hicks appears Friday night at the Sellersville Theater, at 24 W. Temple Ave., Sellersville, Pennsylvania, promoting an album that has yet to be titled or scheduled for release next year. Longtime fans will get to hear some of that new material, along with tunes from his 2009 CD “The Distance.” That album included the single “What’s Right is Right” plus “Nineteen,” “I Live on a Battlefield” and “A Woman’s Got to Have It.”
So what has Hicks been up to? Well, lots of things. His self-titled, post-“Idol” album reached No. 2 and was certified platinum. Shortly thereafter, he was dropped by his label. He landed a job in the national touring company of “Grease,” opened his own restaurant in his Birmingham, Alabama, hometown, hosted a TV show titled “State Plate,” which covered America’s best foods and signed the first long-term deal by an “American Idol” to perform in Las Vegas.
Taylor Hicks was the contestant who first put the lie to the title of the show "American Idol."
Hicks won the fifth season of "Idol" in 2006 and even had a platinum self-titled album and a No. 1 hit, "Do I Make You Proud" in the show's wake. But everyone knew he wasn't an idol, and his hits and record sales quickly dwindled.
But clearly the show gave Hicks a career. As recently as 2013, he made an annual payday of $2.5 million, and he's still on the road singing.
