Pioneer MemorialPrint Page
The Pioneer Memorial is a rendered brick rotunda which was erected on Big Hill in 1938 to honour the early residents of Stawell.
A Committee headed by the Mayor Cr. S P Freeland worked to raise sufficient money to build this very distinctive memorial on the crest of Big Hill. John Shirlow, who had some of his schooling in Stawell, designed the memorial. The Stawell Progress Association in 1947 presented the centre Directional Disc.
