Statement of Significance

The hall has played an important part in the community, social and cultural life of Waroona in its many roles as a church, slavation army headquaters, and now a Scout/Guide Hall.

Physical Description

A single storey symmetrical building with timber and weatherboard cladding to dado height then asbestos clad to roof on exposed timber footings with access via timber stairs. The hall has a gabled roof and gabled front porch both with half-timbered effect in the gable, double hung sas windows and a sun hood is located on the northern side window.


Possibly built in 1941, for the Salvation Army, although its style is more reminiscent of the Federation period (1890-1915). It was then taken over and used as the Baptist Church, possibly in the mid-late 1960s, then in the 1970s was turned into the Scout and Guide Hall, which was their second headquarters.
