Milton S. Hershey Mansion, also known as High Point or Hershey Country Club was the home of Milton S. Hershey from 1908 to 1945.[2] With 22 rooms and a staff of 3, it was rather modest compared to homes of other wealthy industrialists of that age.[3]

It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1983.[2][4]
