...to the underprivileged!
Milton S. Hershey was born here on September 13, 1857. The house was built by his great-grandfather, Isaac Hershey, in 1826. Milton purchased The Homestead in 1897 and lived there with his wife Catherine from 1905 to 1908. The buildling served as the home and school for the first four boys who were enrolled in 1910.
"In creating Milton Hershey School, Milton and Catherine Hershey went to great lengths to make sure that every student attending this School would have no reason to have his or her energy and enthusiasm diverted from the educational, cultural, and religious programs of the school because of personal discomfort or deprivation. In order to maintain a positive environment, each student will be held responsible for both his or her personal conduct and for being a positive role model for his or her peers."
The present campus encompasses 2,640 acres and is absolutely beautiful!
