Eugowra War Memorial commemorates those who have served in the various conflicts in which Australia has been involved. The memorial was originally erected in memory of those who served in World War One. 

Saturday was a "red letter" day in Eugowra, when the Honor Roll on the splendid monument erected in the park, was unveiled. A procession was formed in front of the Police Station, and marched to the monument, where a very impresssive service was held by the Rev. Mr. Pitcher, and attended by practically the whole of the district.  A collection was taken up and £135 was raised in a few minutes. The whole of the money wanted was raised. 
Western Champion (Parkes, NSW), 30 April 1931.
