Autumn in Pennsylvania
Thursday, October 16
October is a beautiful time to visit Pennsylvania and this time the tour is to Harrisburg and Hershey. Our first stop is the State Capitol Building in Harrisburg. Designed in 1902 in the Beaux-Arts Renaissance period, our tour guide will point out the numerous sculptures, murals and stained glass windows, all with a Pennsylvania theme.
Our next stop will be the Governor’s Mansion which was built in 1966. Here Governor Tom Corbett and First Lady Susan have decorated their lovely home in a style that pays tribute to the many cultures which make up their vast state. Lunch will be in the newly redecorated The Circular dining room in the legendary Hershey Hotel. This very grand hotel is a historic landmark and an elegant jewel nestled in the rolling hills of Hershey. The sumptuous lunch buffet promises to be “exceptional with a flair for innovation.”
Our last stop of the day will be at the Warehime-Myers Mansion in Hanover. This 1911 mansion was the home of Clinton N. Myers who owned the Hanover Shoe Company. Now this classic decorative arts mansion is owned by the Hanover Area Historical Society and showcases many antiques and works of art.
This is a wonderful opportunity to see the fall foliage while enjoying delicious food and snippets of history and art.
