Binbrook Soldiers' Memorial Hall

History: Binbrook Memorial Hall and subsequent additions, located at 2600 Highway 56, Binbrook, possess cultural heritage value due to the property's associations with the commemoration of war dead and war memorials, as well as associations with the community's history and development. The original two-storey brick building was constructed in 1920 to memorialize local citizens who served in World War I, and it continues to perform a prominent role in the social and cultural life of the Binbrook community. The original building is a good example of the Classic Revival style of architecture and was designed by the important local architect, Joshua A. Armes. The later additions to the building demonstrate the building's evolution and continuing use by the community. The entire building complex stands in its original location and is a notable community landmark, contributing to the character of the core area of Binbrook village.
