Greenwood Congregational War MemorialPrint Page Print this page

Greenwood Congregational War Memorial was erected to commemorate the fallen of World War One and World War Two.

The Greenwood Congregational War Memorial was restored in 2010 by the Bunya Community Environmental Association, thanks to $3300 in Federal Government funding. As well as a sandstone cairn erected to mount the original plaque, an interpretive sign explains the history and significance of the memorial site

Bunya Community Environmental Association President Kim Pantano said the memorial, featuring a commemorative tablet, had been thought lost when a church on the site of the former Greenwood Conference Centre was demolished. The Congregational Church was looking for a site to commemorate the war dead from World War One and World War Two, and it (the conference centre) was established specifically for that.

The original stone which was planted in the first building put on site was actually rescued before the demolition of the old building, and a lady across the road had it under her clothesline for about nine years.
