The Memorial Hall was erected in memory of those from the district who served in World War One. The hall was destroyed in a fire in 1934 and a new hall was built and opened on the 2nd April 1935. 

The Jandowae Memorial School of Arts originally erected in memory of those who served in World War One was officially opened on the 3rd July 1925 by Mr W.J. Vowles M.L.A. The proposal to erect such a memorial had been initiated in 1921 but serious drought which occurred in 1922-1923 caused the project to be dropped for a time. In 1925 , tenders were called for the erection of the hall with only one be received from Mr. G.C. Proposch which was accepted. The hall which was built at a cost of  £2000 was burnt to the ground and the honour board destroyed on the 10th March 1934. The hall was insured for £1000.
