This was part of the Milton Hershey School and this tour is free. When you go inside and see the beautiful marble from Vermont and also the chandeliers, they are breath-taking. You will also see pictures by years of all the children that came through the school all because of the generosity of Milton Hershey.

My husband found the school on a map with a visitor's center, so we stopped to visit. What a neat school and building. I would definitely recommend stopping to see this place. Very interesting with an interesting history, started by Milton Hershey.

Best part of our trip. We almost didn't go, thought it might not be much to see. What an impressive building. The rotunda and all the marble is truly beautiful. We were able to get a look inside the assembly hall, again very impressive. And the story behind Milton and Catherine Hershey and their charitable efforts make you want to do more for your community.

What an impressive building, and an even more impressive story behind it all. Milton Hershey's charitable efforts here are worthy of the highest admiration. This phenomenal piece of architecture highlights a gorgeous campus that seems to provide an incredible environment for learning and excellence. Well worth a stop and visit if in the area. Quite a legacy!

I am a graduate of the Milton Hershey School. I know every inch of Founders Hall. It is a beautiful structure that is a landmark in the area. It is a beautiful marble building. Directly across is the Memorial Grove with a nice little pond. You can walk all through the paths in there and it is very relaxing. So, really, it is a short stop you can make if you are travelling and want a spot to stretch your legs, find a clean restroom, and get some history about the Milton Hersehy School.
