The plaque commemorates the 112 years of local government in Spalding and Districts from 1885 to 1997.

The District Council of Spalding was a local government area in South Australia, centred on the town of Spalding. It was proclaimed on 30 July 1885 by Governor William C. F. Robinson, comprising the Hundreds of Reynolds and Andrews as far south as the northern boundary of Euromina. The District Council of Spalding existed until 3 May 1997, when it merged with the District Council of Jamestown and District Council of Rocky River to form the Northern Areas Council.
