One of these early settlers was Patrick Reid. Reid had a holding over the land, calling the area "Hazel Glen". In 1862 Reid's holdings over the land were subdivided into farm land which lead to further settler coming to the area. The increase in settler within the area lead to the construction of a Methodist church on the corner of Yan Yean road and Chapel lane which was opened in 1862. Hazel Glen Common School (currently Doreen Primary) was later built by the local community and was completed in 1867. The school later received aid from the government on 1 July 1868 and was then recognized as Hazel Glen Common School No.945. # Weather # Things to do
