The clock tower was erected to commemorate those who died in service or were killed in action during World War One. 

The memorial tower for fallen soldiers, which is being erected in place of the tower at Carnegie Library, will be commenced immediately. The successful tenderer was E. A. Searle, the contract price being £1,500, including the cost of the clock, which has arrived in Melbourne from England.
