Description

Rock Valley Hall was built in 1914. It hosted farewells and fund raisers for servicemen, and welcomed them home from both the First and Second World Wars. Two honour boards for Rock Valley and District, and a remembrance plaque for the nearby suburb of Larnook hang on the internal walls, honouring those who served in both Wars. An end date is not printed on the First World War board, which was unveiled on 12 September 1917.
