The Connewarre and District Memorial Hall honours those who served. The hall was opened in August 1976 and replaced the original hall which was erected in memory of the fallen of World War One.

Councillor Blyth voiced his desire to see a fitting memorial erected to those who left this district, and have fallen
in the fight for freedom, and suggested the erection of a public hall. The idea apparently was approved of, for at the close of the meeting one gentleman offered £50 towards that object, and another voiced his desire to present  a suitable block of land.
