About Box Hill
Box Hill lies 14 kilometers from Melbourne. Set to the east of Melbourne, Box Hill was once an independent city that was subsumed into the metropolitan city of Melbourne as it expanded eastwards in the 1950s. Box Hill is now a multicultural area with various restaurants and cafés serving a vast array of international mouthwatering delicacies. A squatter Arundel Wrighte first settled the area around Box Hill in 1838. He took up a lease on the land. The Toogood’s, Thomas and his wife Edith, were the first permanent settlers who bought about 5,000 acres in 1841. Wrighte built his home on the their land in 1844 called Marionville. The chimney stone from Wrighte’s home was used to create the Pioneer’s Memorial outside the town hall. Situated on the main road, Box Hill soon became the place of a hotel, built in 1853 and known as the White Horse Hotel because it is named by its owner, that later became the name of the road passing by it. By 1871, only 154 people lived around Box Hill. The expansion of the railway saw a station open in Box Hill and this attracted further development of the area. The first electric tramline of the southern hemisphere opened in 1889, and commercial interest grew in Box Hill by the late 1890s. Residential development was slow to take off. The White Horse Hotel was demolished by 1933, after being closed since 1921 when the sale of alcohol in the town area was prohibited.
