Fueled by an astonishing record of philanthropy by chocolate pioneer Milton S. Hershey, the town of Hershey experienced rapid growth during much of the Great Depression and the decades leading up to it. In that time, Hershey built -- among other things -- comfortable homes for his factory's employees, a system of inexpensive public transportation, a quality public school system, an amusement park that became a major attraction, the historic Hotel Hershey, a community center, a theatre, a sports arena and stadium and a school for orphaned boys. The charitable foundation he established in his name just a decade before his death in 1945 has provided support to organizations like the Hershey Museum and Gardens, the Pennsylvania State University, the local Derry Township School District, and more. Come see the town where this remarkable man built his legacy. This town is the Sweetest Place on Earth!
