Hershey Creamery Company was founded in 1894 by Jacob and his four brothers, Isaac,
Ephraim, Paris and Eli Hershey (no relation to Milton S. Hershey of the Hershey Company).
The ice cream production plant was constructed in 1926 in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania on
Cameron Street where it's been ever since!
