The contemporary significance of a historic town hall to a country community like Kojonup has been recognised by the local Shire, which has just completed four years of renovations on its memorial hall.

As many town halls across the Great Southern region stand in the shadow of what once was, the Shire of Kojonup has repainted, re-plastered and, in some areas, rebuilt the Kojonup Memorial Hall in a $300,000 refurbishment.
