Hershey Community Archives is located in the lower level of The Hershey Story: The Museum on Chocolate Avenue. Researchers should present themselves at the Museum’s front desk. Staff will contact the Archives and direct researchers to the lower level. Researchers are encouraged to review our <> prior to visiting.
Access to some records may be restricted according to the terms of the deposit or donor agreement. Please contact staff prior to your appointment to ensure access.
While not required, appointments are recommended to request access to restricted records, ensure archivist availability, and permit staff time to pull requested records. Appointments can be made by contacting the Archives via phone (717-533-1777) or email firstname.lastname@example.org, in advance of your arrival.
Every effort is made to maintain convenient hours for patrons, but we reserve the right to close for brief periods when a staff presence cannot be maintained. Researchers visiting from a distance should make arrangements ahead of time.
