Scout Hall, Princes Hwy, Dandenong, Undated.

Built in 1930, The Armytage Own Scout Hall (Now known as The Castle) was on Princes Highway, Near Hemmings Park. The hill th hall sits upon sloping into Dandenong was known as Prospect Hill.

The first scout group in the Dandenong area was formed by 1909, Ted Swords, the first scout master formed the Armytage Own 1st Dandenong scout group in March 1928. On January 1935 the unveiling of the foundation stone occurred coinciding with the World Jamboree.

Up until 2004 the scouts continued to occupy the hall and use it for prop storage and set production, In 2005 the city of Greater Dandenong re-developed the hall into a venue with focus on music and youth.
