Milton S. Hershey was born here on September 13, 1857. The house was built by his great-grandfather, Isaac Hershey, in 1826. Milton S. Hershey purchased The Homestead in 1897 and lived there with his wife Catherine from 1905 to 1908. The building served as the home and school for the first four boys who were enrolled in 1910.
Today, The Homestead serves as headquarters for alumni activities and records, including student grants for continuing education.
