Merrigum War Memorial Hall was erected in honour of the fallen of World War Two.

Plans for a memorial in the form of a 'Victory Hall' commenced at a public meeting in 1944. The new Memorial Hall in honour of Merrigum's World War Two fallen was not added to the complex until 1959, when it was opened by the Right Hon John McEwan on 30 March 1959.
