    Using History to Shape the Present and Future of MHS

    Milton Hershey School began as a vision shared by chocolate magnate Milton S. Hershey and his wife, Catherine (Kitty). Unable to have children of their own, the Hersheys used their wealth to create a home and school for orphaned boys. Now, MHS serves more than 2,000 male and female students. The Department of School History serves the MHS community by preserving the past, capturing the present, and preparing for the future. Read about our fascinating history and see how it shapes students and staff to this day.
