Mittagong War Memorial was originally erected in memory of those who served in World War One. The foundation stone was laid by the Mayor Alderman Harvey on the 17th September 1919 with the completion of the memorial in 1920. 

The monument is a cement rendered cruciform-shaped clock tower raised on two lots of four pillars. Underneath the raised section is a crucible-shaped structure which may have originally contained a flame of remembrance. Several commemorative plaques are attached to the upper structure in memory of those who served in later conflicts.
