Pilton Soldiers Memorial Hall was erected in memory of those who served in World War One. Honour Rolls inside include the names of forty soldiers and one nurse who enlisted in World War One, half of those being either killed or wounded. In World War Two, Pilton won two awards for outstanding fundraising, and the pennants are on display in the hall.

This was the first memorial hall built in Australia and it was officially opened by the Honourable Littleton Groom, Federal Minister for Works and Railways on the 26th January 1920. The hall was erected in 1919 for a total cost of £600.
