Description

The Glenorie Memorial Hall was built in 1932 after the original sandstone Hall began eroding. The Hall is a full brick construction with a metal roof. It has decals on the windows of the three military services, an Australian map and the RSL symbol.

The Hall was built by the community for the community with funds from the sale of sandstone from the original School of Arts that stood on the current site, along with the original Glenorie Public School, commenced in 1888.

There is an honour roll monument located around 50 metres south of the Hall in the Wal Buckingham Memorial Garden. The foundation stone of the Hall is dated 1932 and the current Hall was opened in 1933.
