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

There is a movement on Cecil Plains for the establishment of a School of Arts as a soldiers' memorial. In soliciting support the hon secretary, Mr. W. S. A. Grimes, writes : The public of the district of Cecil Plains, both returned soldiers and civilians, desire to erect some memorial to those of their friends and relatives who made the supreme sacrifice in the late war. They have decided that  School of Arts, to be known as "The Soldiers' Memorial School of Arts,"  would be a fitting memorial. Such an institution while being of great benefit, would serve as a memorial for all time.
