Library & Archives

The H-DTHS library contains what one usually anticipates in a library but much more. In addition to published books about Mr. Hershey and the chocolate business, included are books about the Brownstone industry, Pennsylvania German Pioneers (original lists of arrivals in the port of Philadelphia from 1727 to 1808), the Pennsylvania State Police, Major Dick Winters and Easy Company of the 101st Airbourne, plus high school yearbooks, and local area histories.

There are also 1770's warranty maps and other historical maps of the settlers of Derry Township over the years as well as three ring binders with the census through 1940, obituaries and cemetery records, Civil War soldiers, church histories (dating from 1717), and a variety of other history and genealogy related data
