The Snake Valley District War Memorial originally commemorated those from the district who served in World War One. Four pillars have added around the centrepiece commemorating those who served in World War Two and the memorial now commemorates all those who have served in conflicts in which Australia has been involved.

The memorial was restored by members of the community who have dedicated more than 3000 hours over the past seven years to restoring the memorial from its dilapidated state, establishing the group Friends of the RSL for Carngham and Snake Valley. The group successfully applied for numerous small grants that helped fund the project, including a grant to expand the World War One memorial to become a memorial for World War Two and later conflicts.
