Historical information

Do Drop In was a general store and hall from 1937 until 1955. It also served as a bus terminal up until 1979. The shop, hall and vintage buses were destroyed by fire 4 May 1980. The original holiday house was still occupied until 1982. York on Lilydale now occupies the site of Do Drop In.


'Do Drop In' was an important institution in Mt Evelyn for many decades. The fire destroyed this part of the history of the village, so it is nice to have this photo as a memento of this event.
