Templestowe Memorial HallPrint Page
Templestowe Memorial Hall commemorates those served in World War One.
The Templestowe Memorial Hall was built in 1922 by local builder, E.P. Sheahan, incorporating into its structure the former Templestowe Mechanics' Hall of 1882. Both the memorial hall and the monument nearby, honoured the Templestowe men who enlisted in the First World War. The memorials were the result of a major fund-raising campaign, which included sports meetings, a garden fete, and a Grand Bazaar (which ran for three days) held at the time of the opening.
The Premier, the Hon. H. W. Lawson, MLA, officially opened the red brick, gable-roofed memorial hall on 22nd June 1922. It was reported in the district press that by this date the hall was almost completed at a cost of about £2000.
