Blackwood and District War Memorial Hall was erected to commemorate those who died in service or were killed in action in the various conflicts in which Australia has been involved. 

The hall was originally opened on the 14th April 1957 but was rebuilt and reopened in 1985.

Tenders for the Blackwood and District War Memorial Hall close on January 25 and the memorial committee hopes a contract will be settled in February. The architects are the Adelaide firm of F. Kenneth Milne, Dawkins, Boehm and Ellis. The hall will be of community type, and uses will include films, dances and other social activities. It is hoped building will be completed before the end of 1954.
