Milton hershey school Founder's Hall has entertaining programs in the hall. The students/ residents are talented singers,musicians and academically tops. We go for their concerts, Christmas carols and they serve homemade cookies,coffee,tea and punch. It is so nice to see polite young people having fun and sharing their talents with the public.

Very interesting how the school was started and that it is still going strong. We took a tour and found it really interesting. I wish there were more schools like this for children.

A rag to riches American story of a man who not only thought about those less fortunate than his own very humble beginnings, Milton Hershey provided for countless others with his Trust Fund that continues on. Mr. Hershey understood "paying it forward". Take the trolley tour of Hershey, PA to hear his story from Chocolate World. Founder's Hall is the... More

I consider this to be one of my favorite stops on our recent vacation in PA. We of course took in all of the normal Hershey sites but a family member suggested that we see the school.

You can go into the school's visitor's center- learn about Milton Hershey and his wife and get to see and hear the story's of the man and the school which now supports 2,000 students in this school. The tour and descriptions were FANTASTIC. AMAZING

We arrived about 30 minutes before closing and were given a personal mini tour by a young woman working in the office. We were so impressed by the Milton Hershey story that we took several pamphlets and gave them to friends for donations. What a wonderful man, an inspiration. Some of the young "Dot.Com" guys should take a page from... More
