  1. My husband, kids and I live at 63 Mount Airy Drive, in a Don Hershey home listed above. Our neighbor, Maureen Church, informed us about this website…love it! Thank you for building and supporting this great community of homeowners.

  2. You build a home at 221 Rock Beach Road in West Irondequoit for my parents, Jim and Evelyn McVittie. My father met Mr. Hershey at Cornell at the beginning of the Great Depression.

    • Scott, So glad to hear from you. I didn’t have an exact address for the house, just the street. And so interesting that your dad knew Hershey from Cornell! I would love to add photos if you have some you’d like to share. Thanks, Peggi
