Collector Memorial Hall commemorates those who served in conflicts in which Australia has been involved. 

Collector Memorial Hall was built from funds raised by loans from residents. The loans were repaid partly by holding dances and horse flag races. On the wall to the right of the stage, is a polished wood honour roll commemorating men and women who served in World War Two.

A record crowd of nearly 600 people attended a ball on Friday night to open the new Collector Memorial Hall. The opening ceremony was performed by Mr.R. S. Craig, President of the Goulburn Sub-branch of the R.S.L.  Mr. Craig, was introduced by the president of the Collector Memorial Hall, Mr. S. J. Baxter, who thanked the people for their attendance and for their help and co-operation in the past. In congratulating the people of Collector and district, Mr. Craig said they must feel very proud of their achievement in the building of such a very fine hall, which has been the result of a great community effort. It was in memory of men of the village who had served their country well, and in some instances, given their lives.
