Back in 1929 and through 1967 the Hershey Swimming Complex was the "in" place to be during the warmer summertime months! People by the thousands used to flock to this swimming complex for a day of fun in the sun! Once the complex was closed...over the years they filled in those swimming pools with beautiful landscaping and tore down the old bathhouses. All that remains now is the lighthouse which was refurbished and re-landscaped back in 2005.
Nearby you will find Hersheypark, Hershey Chocolate World, The Falconry and the Giant Center. So, if you are heading to any of those locations, the beautiful Lighthouse in Hershey is nearby.
