Summary: The Jandakot Agricultural Hall was built in 1897, soon after the area had been opened up by John Forrest for settlement. As with many small isolated communities in that period, the hall was an important place for settlers to meet, socialise, make political decisions, and hold agricultural shows. This photograph shows the settlers and visitors to Jandakot on Show Day in February 1901. The hall would later have a verandah added to it, and stood on the same site as the modern day Jandakot Hall.
