Additional information

In 1920 extensions were added to the Good Templars Hall to provide a library, billiard room and R.S.L. Meeting Room for public use. The building was subsequently re-named Caboolture and District Soldiers Memorial School of Arts and opened 11 September 1920. The land and buildings were transferred to the Council in 1953 on the understanding that the Council would build brick Council Chambers etc and a Dance Hall suitable for the future. The Council continued to operate the Hall for community activities until early 1969 when it was demolished having been assessed as beyond economic repair . A new hall was built and opened 15 November 1975 designed to fulfil the needs of the shire as a theatre, performance space and dance hall or convention centre.
