Mitchell War Memorial

Mitchell, Maranoa Area
Free Entry
Mitchell's war memorial stands out from the crowd for its unusual design and colour, urging recall and fostering remembrance of names which, as its engraving says, 'liveth forever more'. Major General Sir Thomas Glasgow unveiled the memorial, erected in 1927. The one-of-a-kind sandstone and granite memorial had cost Mitchell's farming community £464. A financial subscription for the memorial was initiated by the Chamber of Commerce and the Booringa Shire Council in 1920. Four steps lead to four Doric pillars surrounding recessed plates of red polished granite which bear the engraved names of 51 locals who served in WWI. One panel also bears the AIF badge. A red granite column, capped by a polished orb, sits atop the square monument's base.
