The Soldiers Memorial Hall commemorates those who served in World War One.

Erected at a cost of £700, the Upper Sturt Soldiers' Memorial Hall was opened on Saturday in the presence of a large crowd. It was stated that £500 towards the expenses was in hand before Saturday; proceeds from the opening function amounted to £50. Four and a half years' work by the committee had been rewarded, said Mr. E. J. Rossini, a member of the 48th Battalion, when declaring the hall open. Among those present were Messrs. Hogben and Dunks, M.Ps., W. Nicholls, chairman of the Stirling District Council, and W. S. Rogers, secretary of the Stirling branch of the R.S.S.I.L.A.
