Stone Hut Soldiers Memorial Hall is dedicated in memory of those who served in conflicts in which Australia has been involved. The hall was originally erected to commemorate those who served in World War One and was opened on the 24th March 1926.  

On 14th August 2006 a dedication ceremony was performed for the new paved forecourt, comprising pavers for pioneers and descendants and a Cross of Sacrifice for those who paid the supreme sacrifice and those who served in conflicts and peacekeeping operations.

On Wednesday, at Stone Hut, a soldiers' memorial hall was opened. The site is on the main road, and working bees placed sand, gravel, and other material on the spot. The plans were prepared by Mr.C.G.Maywald, of Laura, and the contractor for the building were Messrs. C. G. Maywald and  J.H. Acott. The structure includes a main assembly hall 30 ft. by 60 ft of which 13 ft. has been reserved for stage purposes, and an anteroom 10 ft. x 38 ft. The foundation stone ceremony was performed by Mrs. W. T. Baker mother of three sons— two of whom died -who served in the war, on July 22, 1925. Since then Mrs Baker has died.
