Historical Hershey Home Beautifully Captures Chocolatetown’s Past

Front of stately two story home in Hershey PAHershey is a town known not only for chocolate, but history, too. It’s hard to think of Chocolatetown without immediately recalling the brilliant pioneer who put Hershey on the map, or the men who helped Milton Hershey craft his dream into reality.

C. Chance Phillips held a key position with the Hershey Chocolate Corporation from practically its start, and knew Mr. Hershey well. In 1914, Mr. Phillips was given the position of showing the first Hershey movies—yes, movies. Mr. Phillips travelled throughout the U.S., adding his powerful narration to films that showcased the wonder of Milton Hershey’s products. When “talkies” arrived on the scene, Mr. Phillips returned to Hershey, settling into his two story home on Chocolate Avenue.

That property—built in 1933—still stands regally today. If you’ve driven down Chocolate Avenue, heading toward Spring Creek Golf course, you’ve undoubtedly caught a glimpse of its stately façade. The home borders the golf course, with its rear yard abutting a hole that is no longer used in play. You might say it’s a spot where history and scenic views combine, just one of the intriguing characteristics of this distinctive property.

Beautiful staircase in entrance hallInside, you’ll find lustrous hardwood floors, a formal dining room with corner hutch, family room with new brick floor, and a remodeled kitchen that features Corian counters, Whirlpool Gold appliances and a Jenn-Air downdraft dual fuel range/cooktop. The vaulted master suite, one of five bedrooms, features an adjoining sitting room and remodeled bath with elegant Jacuzzi tub and a large tiled shower with glass surround.

Gorgeous deck and patio settingVenture outdoors and you’ll discover the exterior grounds every bit as enchanting. A mahogany deck and paverstone patio make ideal spots for warm weather entertaining. The extensive landscaping includes paved walkways, wrought iron fencing, and ornamental shrubby. There’s even an in-ground sprinkler system for the front and rear yards. Deer and turkey can often be glimpsed venturing along the edge of nearby Spring Creek.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this distinctive home combines the charm and whimsy of yesteryear, with the comfort and convenience of today.
