Lake Bolac Memorial Hall celebrates the centenary of the Opening of the Lake Bolac Hall in 1896.

The building was moved from the original site between the blacksmith shop and the hotel in 1922 to be part of a Memorial Hall honouring World War I soldiers.  It remains as the Supper Room and Stage.  Electric power was connected in 1938.  The World War II Memorial Foyer was added in 1959, the new Kitchen in 1992 and the Southern Extension in 1994.

Unveiled at the `Back to Lake Bolac`, March 23-24, 1996 by Mr. George Hucker of Lake Bolac
