The Tallong Memorial Hall was built to honour those who served in the Frist World War but was also a matter of pride, a project begun to celebrate the fact that the village’s population was approaching 200. …. The building committee worked hard; fundraisers were creative and included an “ugliest Man in Town” contest. Volunteer labour was valued at over £300. Fnally, the committee took out a loan from the Bank of Australasia for the balance. The Hon. G. Fuller, M.L.A., opened the Memorial Hall in May 1920, in front of a large crowd (see the following photo).
