There is a running joke at my place of employment that they built a Medical School and hospital out in the middle of a cornfield.
It is absolutely true.....this year, at least. Last year it was soybeans.
The land surrounding the place is still owned by the Hershey trust. It used to be dairy farms, now it is corn/soybean fields. Back in the day, Milton Hershey wanted cheap milk close by, so he had thousands of acres of dairy farms in the surrounding counties. Some of those old farms are still around. You can tell by the wooden signs hanging by the road, identifying the farm by the number it was given. For example: Farm 41.
Nowadays Hershey chocolate isn't as good and some of it is made elsewhere, but it's nice to get a glimpse of the 'old days'.
And in case you are wondering.... the Hershey Trust donated the land for the Medical School and hospital, which is why it's in the middle of a cornfield!
