Graceville Uniting Church Memorial Hall includes a Remembrance Window and was erected as a memorial to those who have given their lives for their country in World War Two. The memorial hall was officially opened on 1 December 1951. Apart from the honour board remembering those who fell in World War Two, the memorial also contained many tributes to former church members. 

The foundation stone of the memorial hall was laid on 20 September 1947 by Mr W.H. Green, Lay Treasurer of the Methodist Campaign Centenary Fund who said at the ceremony that the future of Queensland lies with its youth. The hall was intended as a memorial to those who had lost their lives in World War Two and also as an encouragement for the youth of today.
