The War Memorial Shelter was erected by the Queensland Country Women's Association (Q.C.W.A.) to commemorate those who served World War One.

At an ANZAC Day Ceremony in Jericho in 1935, after the laying off the wreaths on the honour board at the station, those who were in the procession were taken by cars to the local cemetery. Here, a short but impressive ceremony was held in front of the newly erected war memorial shed. Mrs Cooper, President of the C.W.A. gave a short address about the history of the war memorial fund and then on behalf of the C.W.A. handed over the shed to the Chairman of the Shire Council for the use of the people of Jericho.
