Harston Memorial Hall commemorates those who served in conflicts in which Australia has been involved. 

Proposals to erect a hall in Harston were first made in 1937, but did not eventuate until after World War Two. An acre of land was donated by J A Stephenson and the hall was officially opened on 10 November 1947. The hall building itself was a former internment camp hut and the supper room was another smaller hut acquired from Camp No. 1.
