Lyell District Memorial Hall commemorates those who served in World War One and World War Two.
The foundation stone for the memorial hall was laid by Councillor A.M.Evans on ANZAC Day 1953.
The setting of the foundation stone of the Lyell District War Memorial Hall was the feature of the Anzac Day service at Queenstown. Cr. A. M. Evans performed the ceremony. The Warden (Mr. G. C. Nankivell) said: "This hall is a wonderful statue of remembrance and a symbol of the progress which is being made in Queenstown."
Before setting the foundation stone, Cr. Evans told the people "It has been evident for many years that there has been a great need for a public hall at Queenstown, and the erection of this hall is a fitting tribute to those men who have given their lives for the sake of our freedom."
