Kyogle Memorial Hospital was erected in memory of those who died in service or were killed in action during World War One.

The ceremony of laying the foundation stone of the Soldiers' Memorial Hospital was performed by Mrs. Charles Southam, the mother of a deceased soldier, in the presence of large gathering. The contractor has the building well in hand. The hospital when finished and equipped will cost, approximately £7000. The committee has already in hand sufficient funds to open the building free of debt and it is expected that there will be ample funds forthcoming before the hospital is opened to equip it on modern lines. A provisional committee is getting in funds through the zone system, by which each part of the large district undertakes to send in so much money per annum towards the cost of maintaining the Institution after it is opened. The building, which is of modern design, is being erected on a beautiful site overlooking the town, in the old police paddock near the courthouse which is being removed into the town area.
