Collinsville War Memorial was erected in memory of those from the district who served in World War Two.

In January 1953, the Collinsville RSL asked the Wangaratta Shire Council to take action for the erection of a War Memorial in front of the Anzac Hall before Anzac Day.  In March 1954, the Secretary of the Collinsville RSL advised the Wangaratta Shire Council that it had almost completed a list of those men and women who saw active service and requested that the council expedite the erection of the memorial to be completed by the coming Anzac Day.
