The hall was erected to commemorate those who have served in the various conflicts in which Australia has been involved. 

The £6000 Spreyton Memorial Hall was opened yesterday by the Minister for Lands and Works (Mr. Reece), who also unveiled a plaque honoring local residents who served in both world wars. The chairman of the building committee (Mr.W. Reeves) recalled that the first donation towards the building of the hall was received in 1942, but it was not till three years ago that the Progress Association had purchased, through the council, the land on which the hall now stands. He said £1900 had been raised by local residents, and a Government grant of £1000 had been received.  The hall was built by Messrs. Ryan and Kelly, a Devonport contracting firm, and was completed in less than 12 months.
