The foundation stone of the hall was laid on the 3rd May 1905. The Hall was opened on August 9, 1905 and a supper room was added in 1911. Affiliated with the Institutes Association in 1927, it was thereafter known as the Gulnare Institute.

THE GULNARE HALL. Gulnare May 4. On Wednesday afternoon the foundation stone of Gulnare Hall was laid by Mrs. Cummins. The chairman (Mr. F.

Cummins and F. W. Young. Mr. Cummins thanked the committee for remembering Mrs. Cummins as a past resident of Gulnare, and allowing her the honor of performing the ceremony. Votes of thanks were passed to Mrs. Cummins, and to the chairman, after which the sum of £28 was placed on1 the stone towards the building fund. Of this £10 10/ was given by the Gulnare Racing Club. A public tea was provided on the ground, and was well patronised.
