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

Last Friday Mr. A. S. Rodgers performed the unveiling ceremony of a memorial-a splendid mass of stone- erected by the residents of Harrow and district in memory of the fallen soldiers in the great war. A large gathering of all sections of the people assembled to pay homage to the fallen men, and one of the most impressive ceremonies ever held in Harrow took place. The speakers included Mr. M. Bree (chairman), Sir Neville Smythe, V.C., Crs. M. Wood, E. P. Kirby and Schofield, and Mr. H. Carstairs. On the memorial are the names of 94 district soldiers, and it is a striking addition to one of the oldest towns of Victoria.
