A heritage plaque records: St George's Carrathool. - In 1924 plans were drawn up by architect Mr J H Robertson of Narrandera for a new hall for the Church of England and also a company multi-function centre for socials, dances, fetes and festivals. The builder was Mr Victor Sylvander of Hay. The people of Carrathool and district raised the sum of 740,00 [pounds]. - St George's Hall was opened and dedicated on 26th April 1925, Archdeacon Kitchen officiated, assisted by Rev E R Chapman...The first event was the first ball of the Carrathool Tennis Club on 4th May 1925. A gift evening was held for Maude Parr and Jim Hurst and their wedding soon after. The hall was also the local picture theatre for many years. St George's was also used as a temporary schoolroom, first in 1929 and again in 1938. - Since 1994 Anglican services have regularly been held and have continued to this day.
