Mount Templeton Peace HallPrint Page Print this page

Mount Templeton Peace Hall was erected in memory of those who served in World War One and commemorates the peace.

The hall was built in 1921. The land was donated by Patrick Howard and the building cost £1,000. Patrick Howard had purchased 1,048 acres from the Mount Templeton Station in 1907. Apart from social functions the Peace Hall was used for Catholic masses for 1923 to 1937. In 1954 a galvanised iron supper room was added to the rear of it. By 1977 the hall had few members and was about to close. It is now a vacant ruin.
