The Undera Memorial Hall was built to commemorate the local men who had served in World War One. 

A public meeting in 1924 began fundraising for the new facility, with the Undera RSL leading the campaign by raising £500 through holding dances, bazaars and a 'queen competition'. Debentures were issued to secure the remaining balance. The bricks were made on site from clay that was also dug out there. The hall was opened and an honour roll unveiled by Mr Martin on 26th August 1928 in the presence of 300 people.

Note: The Undera Hall is earmarked for demolition. It is believed that residents of the town wished the facade of the hall be retained for a memorial.
