Historic Sites of Manitoba: Carroll Memorial Hall (Carroll, Municipality of Oakland-Wawanesa)

A fieldstone monument in front of a community hall at Carroll, in the Municipality of Oakland-Wawanesa, was dedicated on 5 July 1981. A bell on top of the monument is from the former Carroll Consolidated School. Inside the hall is a bronze tablet containing the names of 35 local men who served in the military during the First World War, five of whom were killed. The tablet was prepared by the Devonshire Chapter of the Imperial Order Daughters of the Empire and unveiled in August 1919 at a ceremony held at the Methodist church in Carroll.
