The Strath Creek War Memorial is a granite obelisk memorial, commemorating the First World War, with a later engraving to the Second World War on the side. The memorial was originally erected to commemorate those from the district who lost their lives in World War One and lists the names of the fallen from both World Wars. 

A public meeting was convened at the Strath Creek Public Hall in February 1918 to consider designs for a monument to be erected in memory of fallen soldiers from the district. At the meeting it was decided to open a subscription list with the object of raising sufficient money to erect the monument.
