The foundation stone at the entrance to the memorial hall commemorating the declaration of peace and a memorial stone honouring those who died in World War One were laid on the 31st August 1922.

The hall was built at a cost of £2000 and the portion dedicated to fallen soldiers was financed by returned soldiers. All district returned men and nurses were made honorary life members. 

The building has been converted into the Maffra Memorial Library.
