Photographs supplied by John Huth

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

A Soldiers Memorial Hall costing between £3000 and £3500 is to be built in Winton. This was decided at a special meeting of the Sub Branch of the R.S.S.A.I.L.A. on the 16th July 1953. The meeting decided to purchase the land in Oondooroo Street formerly owned by Messrs. Brushe and Gillespie. A sub-committee comprising  Messrs. McBride, Ninnes and Nowland was authorised, to give consideration to the particulars and size of the proposed hall, and report back to a later meeting.
