Hershey wants to tear down part of old chocolate factory

Iconic smokestacks, office space would remain standing

DERRY TWP., Pa. - The Hershey Co. plans to tears down part of the chocolate factory built by founder Milton Hershey.

The chocolate company is seeking permission from Derry Township officials to tear down part of the former factory, although the iconic smokestacks and much of the building's office space would remain intact.

The Derry Township Design Review Board will hold a hearing next week on the plans for the factory located at 19 East Chocolate Avenue.

The demolition proposal comes on the heels of the company's move to new facilities across town.
