Discovering Hershey

600_4844-e_wAs I mentioned in my last post, Hershey was founded to give a home to the workers working at the plantations and in the factories, producing chocolate and sugar from the plants.  Even the village exists and it seems still inhabited, it was extremely quiet. It seemed to me like visiting a ghost town. No sound but the soft wind. No dirt, but clean streets. Many houses with open front doors, but no-one sitting in the rocking chair at the porch. A really huge kindergarten or preschool playground with swings, carousels, garden beds, but no kids. Very strange! I only saw an elderly woman  at the church.

In the background of the above photo you can see the smoke pipes of the old factories.

But have you own look:
