Summary: The Hamilton Hill Memorial Hall was funded by the local community, wanting to commemorate the soldiers of the district who fought in the First World War. After five years of fundraising they broke ground, and the official foundation stones were laid by the Governor of Western Australia, Sir William Campion and local fundraising powerhouse Mrs Maud Winfield, on 21 March 1925.
