History and Architecture:

The Hon. F H Piesse laid the foundation stone for the church hall on 27th March 1911, on a site adjacent to the existing St Andrew's Church. The architect was E Summerhayes. The hall was used weekly for parish meetings, dances, fundraisers and various other activities.

The hall is primarily significant in terms of its relationship to St Andrew's Church, which is the oldest remaining church in Katanning. The functions and events, which occurred in the hall, contributed very much to the social and religious life of the people of Katanning, in particular the large Anglican community. The style of the hall is uncommon in Anglican architecture of the period and is commonly found in non-conformist religious architecture.
