The outside is nice even at night due to the lighting. The interior is the amazing part. All marble, stand directly under the dome and whisper. You can hear your echo clearly.

Everyone know about Milton Hershey & his chocolate bars but there was much more to him than that. This is the place to learn about the unique school that has given wonderful opportunities to so many underprivileged children.
