Since 1991, the History Center has committed to the mission to preserve, promote, and interpret our community's heritage.

Thanks to the contributions of local residents, businesses, and organizations, our ever-growing collection is a unique blend of artifacts, oral histories, and archival resources.  Our Board of Directors, volunteers, and staff ensure the continuity of the mission and collections for generations to come.

 

The History Center's museum provides authentic visual and interpretive exhibits, complemented by our archive and library resources which provide access to records and documents for research and education.  Preservation programming enables community involvement by recognizing significant buildings, landmarks, and events in our shared history.

 

The Hershey History Center is a 501c3 non-profit organization that is supported by membership and the generous donations of individuals, area businesses, and grants.
