Don Hershey designed homes primarily in the Rochester area and upstate NY.
We began this site because we live in homes designed by Don Hershey and wanted to find more of them in the area. This is an ongoing quest and includes information received by current or past owners of Hershey homes, Don’s sons Ken and Al, The Landmark Society and others interested in Hershey design. The site contains a listing of the homes we are certain are Don Hershey-designed and also those that we suspect to be Hershey homes (in these cases we have indicated that). It includes information such as the year it was built, the name of the original owner and other descriptive information. In some instances, there is a link to photos of the home. Just click on the “Photos” link for that home. It is a work in progress and will be growing as we obtain more information.
We welcome your input! If you know of other homes that belong on this list, please comment here.
My first awareness of the Hershey family was my brief stay in a class at Indian Landing School with “Miss Dunbar” who was about to marry Ken Hershey, to, as she said, “become a Hershey-bar.”
