What is significant?
The Yulecart Memorial Hall, located on Dartmoor - Hamilton Road, Yulecart is a small conventional stone hall with a corrugated iron gabled roof. Other structures within the reserve include a War Memorial to those who served in World War One and Two, three tennis courts and a football oval with two corrugated iron sheds. The northern side of the oval is planted with a row of mature cypress trees (now incomplete). The hall and reserve were developed in response to the surge in population caused by Closer Settlement in the early part of the twentieth century. The hall was built by volunteer labour, recycling stone from nearby Strathkellar Homestead. The complex represents a strong sense of determination amongst settler families in the district. Many of the descendents continue to live in the area. The complex is relatively intact and retains a good degree of integrity.
