The hall commemorates those who died in service or were killed in action during World War One.

The hall was built in 1917 and in 1922, £160 was subscribed by residents to perpetuate the memories of those who had died in service or were killed in action in World War One. This memorial took the form of additions to the hall comprising two dressing rooms and a hallway. On the 26th November 1927, a further extension to the hall was opened by Mr J Ostwald, one of the few remaining pioneers of Goomboorian and trustee of the hall.

The memorial rooms and doors of the Goomboorian Hall erected in memory of the fallen soldiers-Sergeant P.J.Kitchen and Private T.E. Mark and other soldiers who had enlisted from the locality were opened on Sunday. The memorial rooms-one for ladies and the other for gentlemen-are attached to the side of the hall, and are divided by a hallway which leads to the memorial folding doors, which open on the main hall. The doors are constructed of polished silky oak, and bear carved and raised panels, as honour boards, on which the names of the soldiers appear.
