The Lake Bolac Memorial Hall was erected in 1922 to commemorate World War One.  A memorial foyer for World War Two was added to the building in 1959.

On the front of the hall there is a marble plaque that lists the residents who served and who died in World War One, Two and the Vietnam War.

The newly erected Memorial Hall, erected at Lake Bolac, was officially opened on Friday by the Premier (Mr Lawson). The hall is a fine spacious building, including a large assembly room, with stage, dressing rooms, supper room, and kitchen; the supper room being set aside for the use of returned soldiers at all times. The total cost of the building was £1950. There was a very crowded attendance at the opening functions, £l50 being taken at the doors.

With the Premier were the Hon. D.S. Oman, and Mr. W.G. Gibson, M.H.R. The Premier, in declaring the hall open, said it was fitting that the great war should be commemorated by a memorial, and he congratulated the Lake Bolac people on the erection of such a fine hall. Such a building would be the centre of community life in the district, and help to make life in the country wider, fuller and more livable. A concert and ball concluded the opening festivities.
