Did you know that trout was a favorite dinner entrée of Mr. Hershey? At the Spring Creek Golf Course, David Witmer—son of Mr. Hershey's gifted architect D. Paul Witmer—will be one of the narrators telling stories about the Fish Hatcheries that stocked local ponds and tables, the Playground and Wading Pool for the day school that was held in the clubhouse, and Joe the Hermit who lived on the golf course.  In addition to iconic entities like the Tea House and Park Ballroom, you will hear about lesser-known tales from our small town days.

The trolley will take you to three sites where you will hear Hershey natives tell stories about the immediate area based on information and oral histories from our local archives. One stop will be West Mansion Road where local residents will talk about the Tea House, the Greenhouse, and the Power Plant Spray Pond (or Sprinklers).

Choose from one of three tour times; 11:45am, 2:00pm, and 4:15pm. Reservations are strongly suggested.

For information about tickets and tour times contact us at 717-520-0748, info@hersheyhistory.org or stop by the Hershey-Derry Township Historical Society Museum at 40 Northeast Drive on Monday, Wednesday, or Friday between 9:00am and 4:30pm.
