Marburg War Memorial Stones Print Page
The Marburg War Memorial consists of two white cairns and a very tall flagpole. The flagpole and first cairn were erected in September 1919 for King and Empire, in honour of those local soldiers who served in World War One.
The plaque on the flag pole states that in 1919 Fred and Henry Muche felled and sapped an ironbark tree off Missigs Road, Haigslea. The pole was then snigged to Marburg and erected where it stands today. In November 1995 a similar honour stone was erected to those who served in World War Two.
