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.

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.
