Karoola Memorial Hall was originally erected in memory of the fallen from the district who served in World War One.

Weather conditions were distinctly unfavourable for the opening of the Karoola Memorial Hall, which took place on Saturday afternoon. Mr. Wardlaw said the hall was a credit to the district and the municipality. To have built the hall during the present period was a great tribute to the committee and the district. He stressed the necessity of the provision of adequate facilities for recreation for the country people. The hall would be the centre of the social life of the district, and was a fitting memorial to the men of the district who laid down their lives in the Great War.
