Founders Hall is a stately monument to Milton and Catherine Hershey and all of the individuals involved in helping them to realize their dream of building a better life for children in need. Visitors to Founders Hall are left with a lasting impression of the Hersheys’ philanthropy and how their generosity gave hope to so many.
The building was built over a three-year period in the late 1960s and opened on September 13, 1970, as a tribute to the school’s founders, Milton S. and Catherine Hershey. Founders Hall is one of the most unique and magnificent pieces of architecture in central Pennsylvania. The Founders Hall Visitors Center is open to the public for tours every day from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., except on school holidays.
