Readers learn some history about Hershey will also being able to read about what Hershey offers, from hotels to restaurants to Hersheypark. This is a well written and easily usable guide for anyone interested in Hershey.

Hershey is officially Derry Township, Pennsylvania, but many tourists and locals call the town after the name of its local chocolate manufacturer, Hershey. The company was started by Milton Snavely Hershey, who was born in Derry Township.

Milton Hershey was an apprentice printer who learned he disliked printing. He found he preferred being an apprentice candy and ice cream producer. He learned from his experiences and applied it towards creating two candy companies, which both failed, one in Philadelphia and then one in New York. When he applied his knowledge of adding milk to caramels, his Lancaster Caramel Company became a success. He then, in 1894, branched into chocolate making with a subsidiary company, Hershey Chocolate Company. This was the first mass production of chocolate which introduced the product, formerly a high priced treat, to the masses.

Hershey sold his caramel business yet retained his chocolate business. He married Catherine Sweeney. They had no children, which led them to their willing their fortune to an orphanage they started, the Hershey Industrial School.

The Hershey factory opened in 1905, returning Milton Hershey to his hometown in a location with good access to local dairies, a river for water, rail transportation, and skilled employees.

Hershey became a "company town" that may have, like other company towns, kept employees welder to their careers. Milton Hershey, though, created parks, trolleys, golf courses, and help locate public schools and churches.
